SESSION OPEN 1 September 2012
I want to take a moment to thank each and every Board member that has served
this term. Each of you demonstrated unflagging support for each other, for
the Project, its volunteers and to the entire genealogical community as we
dealt with the issues presented this term. Thank you all for doing a very
hard job very well. It has been a pleasure to serve with all of you and I
look forward to working with you all again this coming year.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Suzanne Shephard and
Jeff Kemp respectively for their service to the Project in their role as
Board Secretary and Web Manager. Their dedication and service to this
Project is a credit to each of them. A great big thank you also goes out to
all of the Standing Committee volunteers. The volunteers who serve on the
committees go the extra mile to assure that the duties of their respective
committees are carried out to serve and benefit the entire USGenWeb Project
community.

The 2011-2012 USGenWeb Project Advisory Board session is adjourned.
