I wanted to take a moment to recognize that all the people on the
Board have been rotating the secretarial duty for our meetings since
January, and it's been a very effective way of keeping notes.
Everyone's done a great job, and I just wanted to recognize everyone
for their willingness to pitch in for a smoother meeting.

I know this might seem a minor issue to readers who don't necessarily
scribe for a weekly meeting. Believe me, it's a big help! Thanks,
everyone, for pitching in.
