Over the years, I have been asked numerous times to run for the Board of Governors. There are many reasons why I declined. Now serendipity and the kindness of Richard Knierim have conspired to give me the opportunity to be a Governor. I was appointed to fill the spot vacated by Dr. Richard Gomez, who assumed the role of secretary treasurer.
Appointments to the board are an aberration and the process appropriately demands a democratic election. So I am officially declaring myself a candidate and leave it to the general membership to decide if I am up for the task.
