All I can say is just WTF! A publicly funded CEO of a very poor public organisation is charging for information on what it is doing. Does the word ‘outrageous’ jump to mind.
The suggested fee is $35.00!@!
I don't care who is collecting the money. This is just not on!
All these presentations should be available, for no cost, if anyone cares, on the NEHTA web site.
Just utter rubbish!
