News on our EPFG Officers and What to Expect Next
The 2012-2013 was a year of transition. That was expected with nearly a complete rollover of the board and a new set of officers. The new officers tried on their shoes and only some decided to continue their journey in them.
Just prior to the January board meeting, the officers were asked to state their intent for the coming year. We received two resignations:
From our President:
Family and work life have got well on beyond my time to devote to the guild, as such I need to resign as president.
And our Treasurer:
I thought that I could do it all, turns out that I'm just a mortal.
With everything that I have going on in my life, the what still feels recent purchase of FrameWright (June, 2011) and the remodeling¬†of my home. I just don't have the time or energy to devote to the Guild.
So I'm going to need to withdraw as¬†Treasurer of the¬†EPFG.
The EPFG would like to thank them for their year's service.¬†Their willingness to step up when the guild was in crisis held us together to regroup and revitalize. It allowed the guild to carry on and reach into a new future.
A new president was nominated and has been approved by the board.
Rami Alhakeem enthusiastically accepted the position of 2013-2014 President.
Jennifer Patterson, with revitalized energy agreed to continue in the position of Vice-President for the 2013-2014 year. She also accepted the role of temporary Treasurer.
Stacia Harvey renewed her commitment to serve as¬†the 2013-2014¬†Secretary.

A full update of board members and advisors will be announced in March along with information about renewing your membership for the new year.¬†
Editor's note: As a reporter at the meeting, I was refreshed by the energy and commitment of this year's officers as they have begun to gel together, and I'm looking forward to the coming year with the EPFG!
