Your absence will be felt but I am sure that all of NARALO wishes you well.

As I noted on the NARALO call on Monday, to take effect, we do need 
the formal approval of NARALO. To avoid taking a vote, we need the 
e-mail the approval of at least 16 ALSes.

In voicing your support, please give the name of the ALS which you represent.

Alan (speaking as the NARALO "rules guy")
