At the end of August Dr. Bill Dam sent out a letter about his concerns of the direction that Centegra is taking.
He asked that members of the not-for-profit corporation not sign their proxies away to the administration, but come to the meeting and vote in person or assign them “to a trusted fellow member of the corporation.”
The long-time Fox Lake physician and reform politician wrote that topics up for discussion would be
- administrative salaries
- pending lawsuits
- by-law changes without membership notice or consent
- the process of becoming a member
- the process for nominating candidates for the Board of Governors
