By Law, IL has an 11 member Board with 10 voting members and the 11th a non-voting position of the Appraisal Coordinator. There is, apparently, a "12th unofficial member of the Board" exerting a Machiavellian-like influence over the Board. Stay alert.

Bummer. This is how the horse designed by committee ends up looking like a camel.

The whole point of external pressure on appraisers is to prompt them to say one thing and do another. To apply the imprimatur of legitimacy on something that would never otherwise fly if it was fully disclosed.

As "FYI", I left the Board this past October, but, that is not the story. There is now a dearth of institutional memory (and, no, not "just because" yours truly has departed the scene) present--and this really is not a good thing (and it is purposeful). There is, however, no short-supply of inappropriate influencing going on :). Stay tuned.

Wow...
Thanks for filling us in, Lee.

Without details as to who this 12th unofficial member of the board is and how he or she is able to exert influence over the board, I don't know what to make of your accusation. Please provide more details if you are able to do so.

The specifics of what is happening--the awareness of details will build over time. For the moment, I am being purposefully "fuzzy" here as to the details. Observers of the Board, and other than those who are too recent to have good understanding or perspective on things, are grasping what it is that I am sharing. My intent at this moment is to lift the proverbial shades and allow some sunlight into the room.
