CHAMPS Charter High School, Van Nuys, Ca.
[Important Note - When signed anonymously your name and info will not be shown to anyone other than the Petition Administrator and possibly a Notary Public for verification purposes. *Petition Administrator]
To implement the Democratic Process for Nomination and Election of CHAMPS Board of Directors with representation of all stakeholder groups as provided in the CHAMPS charter and bylaws.
It is understood that the acting Board of Directors efforts have been with the best of intent. Those efforts are greatly appreciated by all stakeholder groups. However, it has become apparent that as the school achieves the necessary growth that insures its longevity, that the governing role proportionately becomes broader in spectrum and demands a broader view from the diverse perspectives of all stakeholder groups.
It is the goal of this petition to motivate actions that will ultimately lead to increased transparency, communication, checks and balances, accountability, and a broad overall view in respect to the governance of CHAMPS.
This can best be served by following provisions in the Charter and Bylaws as outlined below:
Following the resignation of Lee Strafford as chairman of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club on 17th May 2010, many supporters of the club demanded a fresh start after over a decade of decline both on and off the field of play.
Over the course of those years, several directors, chairmen and team managers have, realising they have contributed to the downturn in the clubs fortunes, resigned their post. However three directors still remain - Ken Cooke, Bob Grierson and Geoff Hulley.
Between them, the three above-mentioned men have held posts at the club for a number of years, and their combined service and dedication to the cause is appreciated, however many Owls' fans believe the only chance the club has of moving forward is by introducing fresh blood to the boardroom.
In their time at the club, the directors have -
- overseen three relegations in a decade
- overseen the club going from being one of England's top footballing establishments to a 3rd Division side struggling to sign players on free transfers
- overseen a loss of £31m in the clubs finances in just 13 years
- signed massively underachieving and constantly injured players like Gilles De Bilde, Andy Hinchcliffe, Gerald Sibon, Phil Scott, Phil O'Donnell, Simon Donnelly, Wim Jonk and Francis Jeffers on wages we the club couldn't really afford
- spent the clubs money on putting their name towards suing the clubs own fans (and subsequently being laughed out of court)
- stood by as the chairman labelled fans 'scum', 'cretin' and one person a 'venomous bitch'
- stood by as the chairman advocated violence towards a set of fans
UPDATE - On 23rd July 2010 the club was served with a winding up order by HMRC over an unpaid tax bill amounting to £550,000. All the board members still remain in their positions.
UPDATE - On 7th September 2010 Wednesday were reported to be just 24 hours from entering administration due to a £1.1m tax bill not being paid. At the last minute the board were bailed out when the Co-operative bank loaned the required money to pay the bill. The board members still remain in their positions.
UPDATE - On 17th November 2010 Wednesday attended the High Court over an unpaid tax bill. The Owls were seconds from being wound up until the judge gave the club another 28 days to find investment. The board members still remain in their positions.
The undersigned believe that their positions have become untenable, and if the board members mentioned still have a shred of love for the club, a shred of decency, and a shred of pride in their work, they will resign their posts as directors, and make way for three new directors to take their place.
The Stetson Hills CC&R's were written towards the aim of protecting our largest investment -- our homes. The Stetson Hills board of directors does not recognize that allowing unfinished wood on the private access gates of the homes in our community to become blackened over time is a detracting element which is negatively impacting our homes' values. Furthermore, the board does not acknowledge nor recognize that this is in violation of the CC&R's, which is the governing document of our association.
Specifically, the CC&R's brought to bear read as follows:
1.27 "Improvement" means: (a) any Residential Unit, building, fence or wall; (b) any swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court, road, driveway, parking area or satellite dish; (c) any trees, plants, shrubs, grass, granite or other landscaping improvements of every type and kind; (d) any statuary, fountain, artistic work, craft work, figurine, ornamentation or embellishment of any type or kind (whether or not affixed to a structure or permanently attached to a Lot or Parcel); and (e) any other structure of any kind or nature.
3.8 Repair of Buildings. No Residential Unit, building, structure or other Improvement on any Lot, Parcel or other property shall be permitted to fall into disrepair and each such Residential Unit, building, structure and other Improvement shall at all times be kept in good condition and repair and adequately painted or otherwise finished.
Recently, Toastmasters International Board of Directors cancelled the right for District Regions to host Regional Conferences.
The Regional Conferences, just like District Conferences provides Toastmaster members the opportunity to learn, network and broaden the Toastmasters horizons at a very reasonable cost. The Regional Conference Team made up of the host District, provides all the support and efforts at no cost to the Toastmasters International Board of Directors. The Regional Conference, to the best of my knowledge, has not lost any money and therefore usually either breaks even, or makes money for the host District. The only cost that may be associated is the cost for an International Director to be present at the Conference, but this can be decided by the Regional Conference Team.
This decision should not be up to the ID Board, but should be a decision that is made at the Regional and District levels.
The Voting Members of the PBCA, pursuant to FS 720-3.03 have chosen to use the Petition Process to have items placed on the agenda for the June 29, 2009 Board of Directors Meeting.
The petition is necessitated by the lack of acceptance by the President, of several items requested to be added by The Secretary and Board Member of the PBCA.
THIS PETITION WILL BE CLOSED AT 9:00AM ON TUESDAY DECEMBER 9, 2008 AT WHICH TIME IT WILL BE PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION TO THE CCIAOR/CCIMLS BOARD OF DIRECTORS
On Monday November 24, 2008 sixteen members of the Cape Cod and Islands Association of Realtors assembled in Orleans to review the most recent developments of the CCIAOR/CCIMLS websites. Following are some of the questions discussed.
General questions and concerns:
• Did enough planning go into these web sites?
• What are the possible unintended consequences to CCIAOR/CCIMLS members?
• What is the primary objective?
• Whose interests are best served?
• These web sites will make it more difficult for agents to distinguish their Internet services from others.
Sales questions and concerns:
• Prospects may move away from the individual web sites of agents and agencies.
• Prospective buyers have little or no reason to register on a member’s web site.
• CCIAOR/CCIMLS is unfairly using membership dues to compete with the agents for prospect traffic.
• Agent/Agency web site investment of time, effort and treasure is wasted.
Rental questions and concerns:
• A highly publicized web site places the association in competition with the member's sites. Members spend a great deal of time and money on software and SEO. The members now have one more very powerful and strong competitor for rental cutomers.
• Rental listings are mostly non-exclusive. The new web sites will inevitably have the same property listed many times by different agencies with different rate schedules, availability calendars, etc. This will be confusing to the consumers and drive rental prices down.
Palm Tree removal.
Due to a sound assessment done 17 years ago, many of the units in our co-op do not have central air conditioning.
Residents of these units are able to hear the increased noise of the trains at night and during the day, especially with the windows open.
The sound of the trains, particularly at night, has been greatly increased with the construction of a third railroad track beside the existing lines and is expected to increase more so as trains begin to run regularly on these lines.
By adding a new third track to the main rail line, the Government of Ontario expects to increase rush hour service along these lines to Hamilton so they won't conflict with the freight train traffic, therefore freeing up all three lines to be used at the same time and thus increasing freight, VIA rail and Go Transit traffic in our community.
By signing this petition you are supporting the reservation acceptance for The Villages Clubhouse to any Village Resident.
And that the Board of Directors not excluding outside organizations from using the clubhouse as long as it is reserved by a Village Resident.

As a counter measure to the request by 40 Dragons Fans to make the Region the Newport Black and Ambers and provide Newport regional stand alone status.
We, the undersigned, would like to propose a counter measure of the Gwent Dragons actually retaining their title and becoming a real Welsh region with a balanced board of directors containing members of all of the regions member clubs, covering Gwent and the dis-enfranchised region containing Pontypridd and Brigend RFC.
This team will play at a neutral venue and seek to court the support of all regional member clubs. Current Head Coach, Paul Turner, is to remain in charge with the current squad. A new benefactor is to be sought by the new board of directors, and a proposal is to be generated for the development of sports facilities for the region at a central and neutral location, on main transport access routes, for all sports, with a stadium and running track.
This proposal is to be submitted to the Welsh Parliament and National Lottery for funding support, amongst other sources.
The on line link to the original proposal is identified below.

The board of directors of the Newport Cove home owners association has elected to Xeriscape (remove 75% of the grass and replace it with gravel).
We bought our home in the "Green Valley" area of Henderson, Nevada because of the lush greenery in the surrounding area.
Recently a rule was created by our BOD represenatives to ban the use of scooters on the private roads of the "Landings of Bell Lake" due to saftey and liability ramifications that are placed on the scooter operator and other members of the community.
In my opinion this rule was decided by select minority representation of the community, therefore I'm petitioning the BOD (Board Of Directors) to bring this ruling before the community as a vote, so that the majority of the community can be heard on their interpretation of the HOA declarations of covenants.
I personally attended the HOA meeting held on July 16th, 2005 and listened to the board members explain their reasoning for banning the scooters, however their argument had no basis, considering the fact that when they were asked about other issues such as fireworks.
We, the residents of Elena Court are requesting that the Board of Directors pass a resolution that allows the residents of Elena Court to have assigned parking spots.
We, the undersigned, do hereby object to the MountainBrook Village Board of Directors' arbitary action of turning off the sound on the TV sets in the Excersise Room. We request that the sound be restored as soon as possible.

This petition will, hopefully, further encourage the casting directors of the upcoming feature film, "Wonder Woman" to cast Eliza Dushku as the lead.
