Title, Appointment of Martin G. Lewis to the Board of Directors as Chair of Ethics
Issued on 02-12-2019
Honorable members of the Access Ready Inc. Board of Directors,
Under the bylaws Article VII Section 9 as Chair I am requesting that you vote on the following agenda electronically
A simple response to the Chair-CEO by email will be registered by the Chair-CEO and then filed with the corporate Secretary.
A notice of this action will then be placed on the Consent Agenda and included in the Board package for the next formal meeting.
Your vote in this format does have the force and effect of an action in a formal board meeting. The Consent Agenda vote is a formality intended to give the Board a second look at actions taken electronically. Please reply to all when responding.
The voting on this agenda will be open until 5 pm on 02-20-2019
A failure to respond will automatically register as an affirmative or yes vote on the agenda.
May it please the Board, the Chair-CEO respectfully requests that it consider appointing Rev. DR. Martin G. Lewis to the Board of Directors as Chair of Ethics.
I have known and worked with Martin for seven years and respect his expertise across many fields. As an Ordained minister in the United Church of Christ (Ret) and a medical DR of pathology he has held a number of prestigious positions and his conscience and ethics are without question. I believe it is right and correct that Access Ready have a Chair of Ethics because the issues both the Board and organization will be dealing with in the future will raise ethical and Moral questions. Technology is pushing the boundaries between right and wrong across the fields of Artificial Intelligence accessibility versus security, and the law versus what is practical. Many of these issues will directly impact people with disabilities across a wide spectrum. There will be many other areas that raise ethical and moral questions and having a Chair of Ethics can guide the Board and Access Ready as a whole in its approach to those issues.
Please review the profile attached.
