Today, Wednesday, October 8, 2014, we, Matt Simmons and Thomas Limoncelli, resigned from the board of Professional IT Community Conferences, Inc. also known as "PICC". PICC is the New Jersey non-profit business entity that has backed LOPSA-East and Cascadia since 2011. Those two conferences should be unaffected as it was already agreed that they would find new organization(s) to work with for their 2015 conferences.
As of June 10, 2014, PICC, Inc. had voted to and was in the process of being dissolved. However we feel this process has become impossible due to the remaining board member's foot-dragging and at times outright deceptive actions. We can not be on a board of an organization that conducts business in that way. We feel that the community deserves better and should request transparency from PICC, Inc. during its dissolution process.
We look forward to the future success of the organizations and events with which PICC has been affiliated.
