Sherri Bradley

With Bill's appointment to fill the NWPL State Coordinator Representative
seat, I've subscribed him to the BOARD and USGENWEB-ALL mail lists. The
Board-EXEC list is a confidential list. All postings to BOARD-EXEC are
required to remain confidential. It is a list that we use for personnel or
other similar, confidential issues such as grievance appeals.

Bill, if you agree that you will honor the confidentiality of Board-Exec,
please signify by responding with "Agree". If you do not feel that you can
honor the confidentiality of Board Exec, please signify by responding with
"Disagree". Once your response to abide by the confidentiality of the list
is received, I'll subscribe you to the list. Your failure to agree to
maintain the confidentiality of the BOARD-EXEC list will have no bearing on
your subscription to any other Project mail list, nor will it affect your
participation in any official AB business.

28 February

I agree to the confidentiality of Board-Exec. Contact information follows privately.
