Well as a group goes along, it's often required to make changes. Just as such legends before me have done (Kir Kanos, Toymaster, etc.), it is time for me to pass the torch. Many things have taken up my time in the past, both for good and for bad in the grand scheme of things. The most pressing new thing in my life has been the CPA exam. I passed one of four parts of the exam earlier this year, and I have until the end of October 2007 to pass the other 3 parts before I have to go back and "earn" the section again. Therefore it becomes obvious that NAD needs someone who can spend more time with it than I can. Shannon aka Jedichic07 has been serving as the Vice CR/Events Cordinator for some time now and has bravely accepted the post of City Rep. She and I have been in discussion for some time now about this change, but pressures at work have limited my ability to write this message for some time. At DragonCon this past weekend I grabbed Shannon by the shoulders and bestowed upon her the new title and responsibilities of the job. I think she'll do an awesome job for this chapter. Plus if DCon's any indication, then NAD is in for the wild time of it's life. So with that I bid adieu to my blue colors as CR and pass them on to a very deserving woman. I plan to still be active in the group and especially will update the DVD Deals of the week thread. Shannon, you can always count on me to help you out in any way possible. Godspeed to the NAD chapter, may we gain new life after the film releases as we head into the TV series. Hama, go ahead and change the titles for Shannon and myself and give me the "Retired FF CR Nashville, TN" title that Mike & Scott both wear, please. Good luck, Shannon!
