My understanding (although I understand there is a competing version) is that your name was suggested. But on the meeting record, Elaine was written instead of Alain, and there was a then a suggestion that Elaine might have a conflict.

can you please explain the reference to my name? Am I to interpret you message below in such a way that you think I am conflicted in volunteering to be on the CMR team? I'm quite puzzled? But indeed I will carefully consider any possible conflict I did not think of... of course, if any NPOC member applied for financial or other support, I would have to opt out of any discussion related to such an application.

Hi Elaine,

This seems to be one big misunderstanding.

This was my point, I thought the suggestion on the call was for Alain not you (Elaine). That was my impression on the call and I flagged it as a mistake in my email to Karla.

Thanks for clarifying for us.

I must say I really do not like anyone stating I'm conflicted about anything-- prior to me expressing any interest or even being involved in any discussion. I have no idea what a CRM even is, let alone expressed any interest in participating. Please don't toss around "conflicted" so carelessly.

Furthermore I believe anyone that challenged my ability to participate in anything owes me an apology, considering there has been zero direct communication with me on this topic.
