Re: doug ronan removed as director from copa

Random thoughts and opinions on the Psutka's response - interesting that Doug Ronan was supposedly given "full access" to the insurance company - 4-5 month after the underwriter wanted it!! and the underwriter wasn't even present!! Also the island airport situation is under control - the Draft plan ...

Re: doug ronan removed as director from copa

The meeting with Mr. Deluce that Doug Ronan was invited to attend, took place on April 20, 2012. According to public records "The Application for Judicial Review" was filed on November 20, 2012. So there is absolutely no conflict of interest there - the meeting was 7 months prior to the court action.

Re: doug ronan removed as director from copa

To answer a few questions: Doug Ronan was never voted out . He was removed by a slimy illegal gimmick of refunding his membership. He was not removed by any legal means and there was no basis on which to fire him, so that couldn't be done either. There remain a number of Directors on the Board with ...

Re: doug ronan removed as director from copa

They will stop at nothing to rein in members! If they find out which COPA Flight you belong to and you ask questions, you and your Flight will be deleted. Look at this link to Copa flights - you find that COPA flight 110 is "inactive " and all the information is gone - all the other ones just say ex...
