        • Andrew was unable to attend the meeting so his resignation speech was spoken by John on his behalf. it reads:
        • “Hello everyone. As of the end of tonight's meeting, I will no longer be a board member of Saskatoon Techworks, Inc. I have been a board member since 2017 and have, until recently, enjoyed my time on the board as it has been a great opportunity and learning experience for me. However, it is with great concern over the current state of the board that I must resign. The current board is dysfunctional and is no longer operating in good faith. It is not my place nor is it appropriate for me to air the boards dirty laundry, so to speak, to the rest of the membership, however, I want to leave with this message. The board of Saskatoon Techworks is responsible for the legal operations of the corporation and to act in good faith in response to their duties. Any attempts on my part to correct the dysfunction would inhibit the boards ability to take care of the daily legal tasks required of it. It is for that reason I am resigning and taking the issues on from the perspective of a member instead of that as a board member. I urge the membership to hold the board accountable and to give serious thought to who is elected at the next AGM. I thank you all for electing me over the years and I hope to continue to be around the space to see it grow for many years to come. ”
