After a long internal discussion about what we need to do with it, the HQ team decided to dismiss our current IR-DX President from his function.
We will not explain all, as we do not like to throw with mud, but main reason for this difficult decision is the lack of good communication between the President and the HQ members for a long time already.
To keep the group alive, we needed to take this drastic step and we will continue to run the IR-DX Group as a team and not just by one person who is controlling everything.
