Richard Lambert has resigned from the NISA Judges and Officials Register
threats of legal action from NISA for posting criticisms about NISA on Facebook
threats of legal action from Esme Gillon
and having supported Skating in the UK tirelessly for the past 9 years, which includes:
running the only effective UK Skating website in the UK
Judging at NISA Tests
Judging at NISA Competitions
providing Data Input and Video Replay Operator Services
providing training for DIVR in the UK
creating the British Synchro Programme 2015
creating the Trophy d Ecosse International Synchro Logo
assist with many technical questions for skaters, coaches and parents
All of which has been done as a volunteer for free.
I hereby resign as a Judge and Official until such time as NISA is run competently as an Association for its Members.
In resigning, I d like to add:
I am disappointed with the lack of support from fellow NISA Members willing to stand up to NISA.
I have yet to meet a single Member who is happy with NISA!
I am sorry that Judy Clinton resigned as Judges and Officials Director
(under the leadership of Ken Pendry there have now been 3 Director resignations in so many years! 4 if you include Simon Briggs who resigned for a day until Ken Pendry changed his mind)
I refuse to put so much work and effort into the support of UK Skating when NISA continues to rule with fear and intimidation tactics.
I would also like to state my intention to stand for NISA Financial Director in the May 2016 elections
But for the time being I give up, NISA has won!
