I submitted my Organizer’s New Business Item this afternoon.
The RA directs the IEA Board of Directors to create an opt-in, password protected database on the IEA website. Members would be able to contact other members who live in the same legislative districts for the purpose of coordinating back-home lobbying. It should be set up by September 1, 2012.
Bob Haisman, former IEA President and retiree activist seconded the NBI.
I wondered how the leadership would go after this. What would be their argument? I wasn’t sure. I just know that decentralized, mobilized political action makes them uncomfortable. They would come up with something.
This is what they will put up on the screen when my NBI is debated:
Additional “cyber insurance” would have to be obtained by IEA, but the cost of this cannot be determined at this time. Computer service estimates the staff time required to set up this database at $24,000.
This is nothing but leadership debating by other means.
We will probably vote on this tomorrow.
