Professional with expertise in this field
This organization has a blatant disregard for people who volunteer to help with the yearly event. There is major abuse of the Bylaws of the organization by not following procedures clearly stated.
The Mission Statement is completely outdated. The 2011 IRS form 990 has errors on it.
It is amazing that the yearly event has been able to operate for 30 plus years without a lawsuit being filed.
In the current situation, I would recommend the community not support this organization.
