On a personal note, as I leave the EC I would like to extend my
profound thanks and gratitude to the EC members for their great
work and support over the past eight months. It is always a joy and
a pleasure to work (and play) with such capable and motivated
people who give new meaning to the word dedicated. Thank you all, and
a special thank you to the new members who have stepped up to the
plate to help provide a valuable service to the Project. I leave the
EC in most capable hands.

Respectfully submitted,
Ellen Pack, Chair
