Jim Bram, President
NAUI Worldwide

Dear (NAUI) Members:

For the good of the Association, we have agreed to end the debate regarding the 2013 election and reinstate the results of the 2013 election as announced in December.  No one is claiming victory.  This decision will allow everyone to just focus on one goal: NAUI.

The current 2013 election in progress has been canceled.  Candidates in the canceled election may stand for election in 2014.  Additionally, nominations are open for the 2014 election.

NAUI was founded more than 53 years ago as a democratic, membership association.  The Board of Directors has been dedicated to representing and honoring the democratic principles of our Association and to serving in the best interests of the membership.  Regardless of each individual Member’s opinion regarding the debate, the most frequently heard position put forth was each Member’s strong commitment to NAUI.  Such commitment has been true since NAUI was founded.

We, the undersigned, collectively pledge to put the election debate behind us and work together in good faith, on your behalf, toward the advancement of NAUI.  Let us all turn our energies toward advancing NAUI.

Best regards and safe diving,

Dallas Edminston, Director

    Let’s see–the ones with the ’emeritus’ label were the ones who LOST the election, right?
