Friends... The comment was presented to me, 'now the challenge is to follow thru'. How true, how true. Our first meeting is Jan 11th. While the enthusiasm displayed is contagious, the truth is that I cannot do this alone. My role is that of a facilitator; someone to assemble the choices and present them to the Voting Board. While I can and will make recommendations, the final decision about our direction and progress come from Delegates and Board Members, most of which are right here on this forum. I need you to be present at this meeting. I will put forth my goals for review and discussion and some much needed by law changes for review and discussion. These will be voted on Jan 26th. I will put forth a motion to finalize the outgoing membership contractor by approving the final bill. This is the only actual voting to be done and I need you present for a quorum and am asking for your vote of approval. We need to put closure on this issue and provide a smooth transition to the new admin. While I wish we could just wheel and chat around the campfire, we need to take care of some business first. I also want to be respectful of Bodreps. I love this BB feel and the categorized flow of communication. At the Jan 11th meeting, I will ask Brian and Morgan to move forward on creating a BB format for Bodreps, unofficial but open to Bodrep members to explore and 'get the feel'. I will ask for official approval on Jan 26th. Until such time, I will treat Bodreps as the official avenue of communication and will try to present information there first, in respect to the Board Members, then follow up here for general communication. Thanks in advance for your support!
