>From: Dick Davis <ddavis at blindinc.org>
>Dear Friends,
>I realized today that not everyone in the NFB 
>knew about the recent Executive Director 
>transition at BLIND, Inc., so this e-mail is my 
>attempt to bring everyone up to date.  As most 
>of you know, Shawn Mayo’s last day as 
>Executive Director was December 31, 2013.  She 
>moved to Iowa with Emily Wharton, and after a 
>period of rest and recuperation, went to work 
>for the Iowa Department for the Blind, where she 
>currently runs their orientation center.  I 
>became Executive Director on January 1, 2014 and 
>spent the next four months training Dan Wenzel, 
>whom we had hired before Shawn left.  My task 
>was completed on April 30, and Dan became 
>Executive Director on May 1st.  He is proving to 
>be an excellent hire, and as you might expect, 
>everyone loves him.  After a short rest from my 
>labors, I was able to return to my former 
>position as Assistant Director for Employment, a 
>job that I love.  Transitions of this type are 
>never easy, but this one turned out great.  I 
>can't say enough good about all of you who made 
>my task easier.  And please join with me in 
>welcoming Dan Wenzel to the position of Executive Director of BLIND, Inc.
>All the best,
>Dick Davis
