A Change in Leadership

I am writing to inform you of a leadership change in our party. As you know, all of us -- from the national executive committee on down -- are volunteers.

Dale Ritchie, our national chair, has encountered just such a challenge and has thought it best for the party to step down. Our executive committee decided I should move up from the national vice-chair position to take his place. Michael Burger, our former national chair and current West Region chair, was elected by the committee to take my place as national vice-chair.
