I joined the executive board of a professional organization. I haven’t even attended my first meeting of the board yet but I have already discovered that there’s a major drama going on in the organization regarding a gentleman named Jack.
Within the past couple of weeks, several board members resigned in protest over Jack and shared reams of letters condemning him. Other people wrote reams of paperwork in support.
I’m now really excited to be on the board and see the man who’s evokes such powerful feelings in others.
The main charges against Jack are that he allowed part of the professional conference to take place in person and not online, refused to demand vaccination proof and masks at the conference, and “once used a word that can be construed as offensive to the disabled community.” I’m starting to think I will probably not hate Jack.
