Thank you for your reflections. We will certainly miss you when you leave
office in January.
As we all know, one need not be physically present at a Chapter meeting to
participate. Indeed, all members of the Chapter voted to amend our Chapter
Consitution to recognize that attendance in person is of no greater value
than attendance via electronic communication, such as conference call.
To my knowledge, no one has perfect in-person attendance at our Chapter
meetings. The availability of attendance via conference call has allowed
Chapter members to participate in meetings and keep up-to-date with Chapter
events and plans. I'm sure that we all will agree that our Chapter is
stronger due to the availability of attendance via conference call.
Also, as you note. Anna remains our Chapter president and Matt remains
Chapter vice-president until elections are held in January. I don't think
it is our role to dictate to either Anna or Matt who should lead Chapter
meetings until January. I'm sure that Anna and Matt will work out any
questions as the leaders that they are. As a Chapter member, I choose to
focus on following my elected leaders and their decisions.
Again, Elizabeth, we will miss you very much. You have done a wonderful job
both as Chapter Treasurer and as a Chapter member. I look forward to seeing
you (or hearing you if you choose to attend via conference call) at our
