|Other Business - Adjournment and Transfer of List||
(8-31-04) From Isaiah Harrison:
All good things must come to an end. So it is with this meeting and with my tenure as National Coordinator.
Thank you to the Advisory Board for all your time and energy spent in leading this project. It is frequently the most difficult and divisive questions that reach the AB before being resolved. Your efforts in addressing those problems and in enduring the criticism of your opinions and actions have been very much appreciated by me and by the project as a whole. I'm looking forward to working with you in the future.
In a few minutes I will transfer this list and the project to Shari Handley.
The meeting is adjourned.
(8-31-04) Reply from Jan Cortez
Thank you Isaiah for your kind words, and for leading this project for the last two years. Please know that your efforts and accomplishments have been appreciated by many.
Good Luck with your genealogy and your websites. We'll know where to reach you.
Again thanks for everything, you leave here knowing that you have done your very best to further the project.
|Other Business - Farewell and Welcome!||(9-1-04) From Shari Handley:

Isaiah, Pam, and Phyllis, thank you for your exemplary service to the USGenWeb during your time on the Advisory Board. All of your efforts have been appreciated.
