News to me. I'll check into it, but I probably won't be able to find out any more than you can.

As far as I can see, the ACA hasn't removed his name from any convention info. What did you see that they've removed his name from?

I should have checked FB before my previous reply. ACA Convention FB Group has a discussion that indicates a problem of some sort, but no real information.

I found out a little. Everything is OK with Ad. The issue is about the sponsorship of his talk at the convention, but I'm not clear on details.

Ad will be at the 2015 convention as planned. That has not changed. What has changed is that donations for speaker sponsorship's will now go into a combined pool to support all of the speakers instead of individual speaker sponsorship's. Before it was $500 to sponsor one speaker, now there are several levels ($45,$100, $250 and $500) for people to sponsor all of the speakers. So please by all means show your support of bringing in these outstanding speakers to the ACA's annual convention by going to http://www.acaconvention2015.com/registration.html and sending in a donation.

Thanks in advance for all your support.

From ACA Convention Facebook Page:

Due to the outpouring of strong sentiment, NECA will be refunding the sponsorship of Ad Konings in the upcoming ACA convention. All monies previously collected from this individual will be refunded. NECA will also absorb the costs of the registrations that were raffled off at an auction. The winners of that raffle will be welcomed as will all members of ECC. NECA and the ACA were unaware of the conflicts that have recently come to light. Many have expressed an interest in donating to offset the lost funds, therefore the ACAconvention2015.com website has been modified. Instead of sponsoring an individual speaker, you may now donate to a general speaker fund. We hope that everyone can move forward, focus on the positive, and enjoy the ACA Convention that us New Englanders have worked so hard for the last two years to bring to you.
