>> Rob Salsgiver - Rob has taken much of the project organization tasks,
>> which for the number of projects in the field we have, is often like
>> wrangling a herd of cats. I very much thank him for his efforts, and I look
>> forward to what this summer’s work season will bring (and has already
>> started to bring in recent weeks).
>> Doug Kingston - Doug does much of the work managing our inventory. As
>> with above, with many projects going on, keeping track of what gear we have
>> ready to deploy and what we need more of can be a significant effort. Thank
>> you Doug!
>> Tom Hayward - Tom has done fantastic work over the years both in
>> developing several of the applications (like the management portal, abuse
>> detection, and more), as well as often acts as one of our tower climbers
>> for installs. Certainly invaluable.
>> Nigel Vander Houwen (me) - I handle many of the administrative tasks for
>> the org. Record keeping for technical aspects of the org like LoAs, handle
>> any contract items, and manage things like this email/vote.
>> In addition to the current directors, I’ve spoken with Bart Kus, who has
>> been a director in the past, as well as started the HamWAN project. He
>> bowed out last year due to personal issues, but has indicated he would be
>> willing to serve this year if elected. Thank you Bart.
>> For anyone else who wishes to run for the board, please send an email
>> here to the mailing list announcing your intention to run. The voting

>> Rob Salsgiver
