As announced in this blog posting from July 2014 and at the regular August 2014 meeting of the ANC, I’m retiring from the position of Chair as of today, September 9th, in advance of retiring from the ANC at the end of the calendar year — so that other Commissioners can get experience managing the organization and be better prepared for the next term of the ANC. Many thanks to those of you who had kind words to share after I made the announcement!
In accordance with the ANC’s by-laws, Vice Chair Noah Smith will serve as acting chair as of today. In addition, we will need to fill this vacancy in the chair position at the next regular public meeting, which is tomorrow, September 10, 2014. This will be the first order of business on our agenda, after calling the meeting to order.
