Just wondering if they will be allowed to crossover in the two organizations.

They should be able to - both are scholarship organizations. So why not?

Since MAO is somewhat butthurt over the Volunteer pageant, don't be surprised if they initiate a policy that only allows a contestant to compete in one or the other. Probably can't do that legally but who knows.

Nothing wrong with good competition. If MAO doesn't like the girls competing in Volunteer, then they need to step up their game to the point they don't want to compete anywhere else.

Exactly - MAO brought this on themselves. Now they need to deal with the consequences like adults.

Yeah, like MAO crowning Miss NY as Miss America every other year. Total BS. At least at the other pageants like Miss USA, EVERY state’s Miss has a fair chance

I wouldn't be surprised if some drift to Volunteer. A big statement was made the past two years or so: If you aren't a teen winner, others need not apply.

Sad but true. If you didn’t do teen, or haven’t “paid it forward” by competing for years, there seems to be no point

And another big statement was made, "If you don't like what we're doing at MAO and the direction we're taking, you need to leave."

I’ve heard a few of the girls who aged out of MA are doing Volunteer.

Saw the Miss Al Volunteer board of directors list yesterday. Looks like there were other longtime dedicated MAP volunteers who were ready for new direction. Exciting news!!!

Also noticed that Angela Walker (former Miss Alabama and her daughter) is getting all chummy on the BOD announcement page. I knew most of them but didn't know the McGuire or Conder ladies.

All have ties with the Executive Director of Volunteer- either former titleholders or their family members

Thanks! Just don't understand Angela Walker jumping ship. Guess she got all she could out of MA and decided to move on.

Angela and the other people can do whatever they want, they’re grown. People are sick of Nan and this board with no diversity!

Funny thing she drank Nan's bathwater when getting her daughter into the Miss Alabama crown. Guess Nan doesn't have anything to offer her now so she just moves on where someone will acknowledge her again.

You sound a bit like sour grapes. I’m not really sure how Angela Walker has any relevance to this conversation about Volunteer or why anyone would feel the need to single her out individually. There are several former MAO supporters that have made the jump. Shall we name them all? Or is your desire to call-out based on something other than Volunteer? Hmmm…The systems are obviously very similar and, just by sheer principle alone, I don’t think there is a supporter on either side that can HONESTLY say it does’t make sense to inquire on BOTH systems.

Does being a former Miss Alabama give one automatic qualifications to be on the B.O.D.? That’s what’s I want to know..

Let’s be clear here… not all former Miss Alabama’s agree with the chosen ones who are on the board. Not every former gets asked… just Nan’s favorites or the ones married to doctors. And, most formers don’t want to be on the board anyway.

Most of the people listed with the Volunteer group have been a local director and can relate to what all we have to do. Of the 12 board members listed on the Miss AL website only four have been in our shoes.

I think there is a clause in the contract that states once you win a local pageant you cannot compete in another pageant until after the state competition. So I don't see how you can compete in both systems unless you violate your contract.

That's right! READ those contracts before you sign them!
