“Nolan Santana

Board of Trustees


City, State, Zip Code

Dear Mike,

As of the date of this letter, I am resigning as a Trustee of the SMSF. While I have enjoyed my time and was looking forward to another term, recent events have made remaining a hard choice. As an alumnus of SMSF, I joined the Board with what I thought was a clear understanding of the membership. I believe the Board has lost its focus over the last few years.

As everyone knows, I was disconcerted by the Board’s methods in selecting the new president. It felt to me like a buddy system was in place and a choice had been made before a single applicant had been reviewed. I felt our responsibility to lead the selection process as opposed to circumventing it only hurts the Board’s authority and credibility.

Unfortunately, my dissatisfaction with not just the selection Ð whom I feel has neither the experience nor educational background to sufficiently manages Ely Ð but with the process has left me in an awkward position with the Board, as well as at odds with the new president.

To my mind, I cannot effectively operate as a Trustee and see this resignation as my only option.

Best regards,

Nolan Santana”

“Dear Ms. Shute,

It has been an honor to work alongside you on the Mark & Mark Financial Board of Directors. You have been more than a capable leader and I have learned much about the decision-making that goes into running a successful company. However, I feel that it would be best if I resigned from my position on the Board, effective October 1, 2017.

My commitments have become increasingly time-consuming and, over the past year, it has been difficult for me to manage many aspects of my personal life. I want you to know that my departure is not directly related to any specific person on the Board, but simply due to my need to make my extremely strenuous schedule slightly less demanding.

With my remaining time on the Board, I would be happy to assist in the effort of finding a replacement and training said replacement so that they are fully prepared come the time of my resignation. Please contact me with any questions or comments in that regard.

Thank you for the opportunity and give my regards to the other members.

Best wishes,

Rick Yorkdale”
