The transparent fog

Bob Mackin writes at The Tyee:
VANOC’s last board meeting opaque.

His piece is longer but this interested me:

  • On May 16, 2007, VANOC pledged to increase transparency by posting agendas before and summaries after meetings.
  • VANOC’s last annual general meeting before the 2010 Winter Olympics is Wednesday, but it’s behind closed doors.
  • The agenda also includes ratification of minutes for a secret meeting Oct. 16. No prior notice of that meeting was published.
  • The last regularly scheduled meeting of directors for 2009 immediately follows.

Good thing these directors are well paid. That’s an onerous pace they’re setting. Managing so transparently must be stressful too.
