Not that it will shed any further light on this matter but it is worth
one further try....

The statements issued by the Board may be clear to you, as a person
present at the meeting, but they are not clear to me.
Furthermore, this discussion isn't a "witch hunt," to use one
characterization, or a question of speculating on motivations. John
Unsworth made it clear in his initial statement that "strategic
priorities" were part of the issues between the Board and Chair. Surely
those "strategic issues" are relevant to the upcoming elections to both
Board and Council?
At a bare minimum, the TEI Community should be explicitly told:
What "strategic issues" lay at the heart of the disagreement between the
Chair and the Board. Along with who supported which positions.
Voting members may wish to vote for Board members who continue (or
oppose) the strategic priorities that lead to the recent events.
They can't do that if they don't even know what issues were in play.
Hope you are having a great day!
