[vcf-midatlantic] Update on Me

As I previously, rather obliquely, mentioned, I have relocated to
Charleston, SC for job reasons. The super short version is I am now at a
school where I can teach *a lot* more students 6502 Assembly.
When I was first approached to be a member of the Mid Atlantic Steering
Committee, my immediate response was that I wanted to run in an
election. Circumstances dictated that such an election was not possible
at the time and I agreed to serve with the agreement that my position
would be put up for election in December 2020. At the time, I fully
intended to run for re-election (well, election), however, in light of
my relocation, I have made the decision that I cannot fully function as
a Steering Committee member from South Carolina and, as such, will not
be seeking (re-)election. My regular work in the warehouse will also
have to stop, for obvious reasons, although I'm planning to visit a few
times each year to do what I can do to help.
I will, however, continue to work as the national (paid an insanely
modest sum which I will not disclose) Social Media Specialist and will
continue working with both the National Board and the MA Steering
Committee in a non-voting capacity.
Dean Notarnicola and I are working on the MA Steering Committee bylaws
(at little late.. but, well, pandemic), so at this point, please hold
any questions about how the election will actually happen. What I'm
hoping to do with this email is to get people thinking about running for
the Steering Committee for an election in December.
If you think the Steering Committee is doing things well and want them
to continue in that direction, consider running. If you think the
Steering Committee is running things into the ground, you definitely
need to run.
My dream has always been an organization by the people for the people.
Elections are the only way to make this truly happen.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to email me at this email or my
VCF email (which reaches me quicker) <adam.michlin at vcfed.org> if you
have any ideas, questions, complaints about either social media or the
goings on of the MA Steering Committee and *especially* if you are
thinking about running for the Steering Committee and want to know more.
I and the other Steering Committee members are also more than happy to
answer questions about the position here publicly.
And, of course, be sure to follow VCF at:
Yeah, I know, new fangled crazy social media.... But you're missing a
lot of cool content!
