As you know, we recently had a significant disagreement regarding the purchase by WSPRC of FoGO T-shirts with the Observatory logo. I believe this originated due to misunderstandings and misinterpretations of verbal conversations and assumptions that spanned several months in different venues with different people and under different circumstances. This was followed by an irregular purchasing event.
In order to resolve these issues, and avoid the formal Complaint Resolution process contained in the Cooperative Agreement between WSPRC and FoGO, I and the Treasurer of FoGO met with Andy Kallinen. I believe we have reached an amicable win-win solution which will avoid any future misunderstandings.
As you are aware, following the recent meetings of FoGO Board members with a CPA familiar with such relationships, it is imperative that any future agreements be executed via written agreements signed by a representative of each party to the agreement. Therefore any such purchases and exchanges in the future shall be done via such formal written instruments.
We will therefore be able to strive for a continued cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship between WSPRC and FoGO for any transactions in the future.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and I look forward to a continued positive and mutually beneficial relationship.
