Thank you for doing this. Being a fully-involved Board member will be a
significant time committment, and it's important that you don't ever find
yourself in a situation of *either* hurting an ALAC meeting quorum or
missing important Board business. So I appreciate your decision and thank
you for it.

As far as the issue of Liaison ... Just because you are no longer an
official voting member of ALAC does not prevent you participating in it to
the extent of your availability. As a part of ALAC I look forward to working
with you to share information, viewpoints and insight, so that your presence
on the Board and our activity within ALAC achieve the greatest degree
possible of harmony in advancing end-user needs and issues.

- Evan
