As a dedicated leader in the  ALAC  community your  temporary absence for
the next couple of  months will be missed,  we will strive to fill some of
the gaps.  I am confident  given Evan's experience as a former  chair that
his involvement will be outstanding and the help of  Judith.

Your decision to step away for a short while is a good decision and your
 priority is focus on the health and welfare of your family.

Best wishes
