When I asked to see the financial in-depth financial statements, the executive director launched a character assai nation campaign of lies and innuendos. To have me removed from the board and eventually kicked out of the association that I founded. I demanded my loan3ed museum articles returned and they were missing. This has bee the subject of a 2 year legal battle. Since then she has used the same tactic to discredit two other founding and credible members and has replace the board with her friends and unqualified or submissive neophytes to charitable or non-profit organization. The Executive Director is not a qualified curator, has failed in her own personal business, and has her home in foreclosure proceedings. Thus This Organization has failed to live up to it's full potential.

I would replace the executive director immediately. When she leaves, her friends and cronies would voluntarily leave. Then I would replace the board with leaders from across the country that have experience with success and management, At that point it would be possible to turn the organization around to earn the respect and confidence of the Packard Car owners and major donors that the currant administrations has alienated.
