Chairman Rosie?


Recommended Posts

An interesting observation. On twi's website, it lists the board of

directors, and gives NO titles to anyone...except her. She is not

the president, but rather the 'chairman.'

Are there no organizational officers for this? (pres, vp, sec treas, etc.)

(I may be wrong...not sure. Just noticed the change)

Isn't the board of directors usually somewhat separated from management?

And isn't it appropriate to call a woman a 'chairwoman' or 'chairperson.'?

She has decided to be the chairMAN in this instance.

Interesting....velly interesting.

Well, the trustees / directors have always elected the directors amongst themselves and appointed themselves as officers. Basically doing double duty. It's not that uncommon for small, privately held corporations to have directors share the responsibilities of being officers as well. Especially, if there is a central power figure.

I had posted about this in the third person. Basically, I was at the leaders meetings in 2007 when she shared the plans to separate directors / officers. So you have a chairman of the board, which is of course Rosalie and she will maintain micromanaging control, the board members - basically, she will appoint the people and bring it to a yes vote from the yes men elected to the board. Then you will have the officers. President, vice-president(s), secretary, treasurer, etc. These are appointed by the board. Oh, as it was she was planning to have the president also be a member of the board.

Rosalie's plans were to have the board set policy, teaching topics, etc and have the officers run the day to day operations the the way international. She set it out there like it was revolutionary but in the real world this is how corporations typically operate.

She is in her early seventies and is slow as molasses in January from a productivity perspective. Slow and proud of it in fact. Bottom line she is old and can't keep up with things anymore. So, to retire, instead of walking away - she gave herself a in-charge part time job on the board of directors as chairman of the board.

When she was originally instated as President, it was said it was for a short time ~ 5 years for this reason - she was reaching retirement age.

Now with her political posturing and power plays of axing any opposing viewpoints, she's well set to be the Strom Thurmond of TWI's leadership meetings. Power into the '90's. The '90's are the new '40's, right? So BOD meetings into the future will consist of making sure Rosie's driver has her there on time, can wake her up at opportune moments in meetings, and can dab the drool off her frock.

Isn't that exciting, TWI folks? Isn't that just 'wonderful'?

So...who's next? Donna? By the way, not all people in their 70's "drool on their frock". I mean, look at Ronald Reagan...uh, nevermind.
