Eric Beer’s last day as webmaster is November 1. Joy and Glenna were at his house Oct.4 for 2 hours training on Wild Apricot sections which was overwhelming and requires practice. There is a possible replacement, but further discussions and training are needed before final decision. However certain Board members should learn to be responsible for certain parts to spread the workload. Wild Apricot still has one year left on contract.
