ITHA responds

The ITHA Board of Directors on February 6, 2006 received formal certification from its independent corporate auditor, Beth Tabek (of Ulbrich & Associates) that a kitchen meeting on December 17, 2005 of a few disgruntled members, did not constitute an election of the ITHA. Subsequently, any claims as to the appointment of a new Board of Directors and President are invalid. The ITHA Board of Directors, on advice of its Election Committee, unanimously approved a resolution which confirms the findings of the independent corporate auditor declaring that there was no election held by the ITHA in the year 2005.

The Election Committee also reviewed the survey results concerning when the ITHA membership would like the 2006 election held. Based on the membership input, the following schedule was approved by the Board of Directors;

  • September 8, 2006 Nomination Meeting (Arlington Park)
  • October 7, 2006 General Membership Meeting (Hawthorne)
    (Candidate Presentations)
  • November 1, 2006 Ballots mailed to General Membership
  • December 1, 2006 Ballots due back to Independent Corporate Auditor
  • December 8, 2006 Ballots counted by Independent Corporate Auditor
  • December 15, 2006 Election winners take office

Ms. Tabek also assured the Board of Directors that her audits have not indicated any improprieties and Ms. Tabek feels confident that the audits and the ITHA income tax returns will be accepted by the Internal Revenue Service as filed as has been the case each and every year.

Ms. Tabek and Ulbrich & Associates has been the independent corporate auditor of the ITHA since January of 1992. Ulbrich & Associates were retained by the ITHA under Christine Janks as President. Ms. Tabek has worked in this capacity during the terms of (5) administrations. Ms. Tabek is now conducting the 2005 audit.
