Thank you for nominating me (and supporting my nomination) for various
roles in the ALAC Officer Election.
The ALAC Chair has indicated that, in light of the revisions to the ALAC
Rules of procedure currently underway, "the officer positions are set to be
changed completely. As a result, it is unlikely that the positions above
have any meaning as such."
To support a simple election process, I hereby accept the nomination for
the position of Regional Representative and decline all other nominations.
Thank you again for your support and trust.
