Case Number: -------------------

Dear Mr. O'Neal:

This office has recently completed an audit of the General Organizers Association (GOA) under the Compliance Audit Program (CAP) to determine your organization’s compliance with the provisions of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA).  As Investigator Abbey Kepf discussed during the exit interview with you on the above date, no violations of the LMRDA were disclosed in areas of financial activity included in the CAP.  This does not exhaust all possible problem areas, however, since the audit conducted was limited in scope and did not include all areas of your union’s operation.

I want to extend my personal appreciation to the General Organizers Association for the cooperation and courtesy extended during this compliance audit. As the GOA has recently merged with the Federation of Agents and International Representatives (FAIR), I encourage you to share the compliance assistance materials provided to you with the officers of FAIR. If we can provide any additional assistance, please do not hesitate to call.


Lesta A. Chandler
District Director
