I would like to let everybody know there has been a change in the board 
of directors and leadership of AllStarLink. I have resigned from the 
board and as President of the organization. I am working with the board 
to transfer all of my responsibilities to others. I expect more 
information about the membership of the board will come from them.

When Jim passed away, I was asked to step in and make sure AllStarLink 
continued. In fact, my goal was simple, AllStarLink should survive any 
single person. No matter who comes and goes, AllStarLink continues to 
move forward. We formed a Not for Profit corporation, setup a board of 
directors etc. Kevin, Bryan and Tim stepped up and filled out the board. 
All three have done quite a few very important tasks that got us on our 
feet. We moved the source code to GitHub where everybody could see the 
code and contribute. We made sure the DNS was solid and correct. The 
servers were backed up. An inventory of servers and application was 
built so that we could recover. You can't fix something if you don't 
know it exists and where it is. All in all lot's of work was done behind 
the scenes. There is still a great deal of thing to be done. We have 
teams for the infrastructure, development and administration. All the 
teams need people willing to put in the hard work of running what 
amounts to a enterprise. If you can help, step up!

I am not falling off the edge of the earth, I have quite a few projects 
going. I will continue to contribute in my own way to AllStarLink, just 
not in a daily active role. This is a positive step. AllStarLink will 
continue to innovate.

73, Steve N4IRS
