Hi Everyone,

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!
