I am also sorry that Jerry and KC are stepping down as organizers, however, I totally understand. It is a very time-consuming job to keep all of us in order! Thanks to both of you for your years of dedication to the group. Jerry took me under his wing 4 1/2 years ago when I first started and has been an integral part of my growth over the years. KC you have done a wonderful job as main organizer, setting up the workshops and teaching during those events. There are many others who have helped me over the years as well. Dylan is a Sony and anything technical expert, and Di Gunning was the first one to tell me to put my camera in Manual mode (I had told her "oh I don't like that one"!!) This is a group of amazing people and friends. Lets work together so the future organizers don't become so frustrated. xoxo! Jan

Ahhhhhh....This is the first that I've heard of it. I'm sorry to hear about Jerry and KC stepping down! I wish them both lots of luck in their future plans and would like to thank them for all they've done for ASW! I've been a member of the group for 2+ years and have learned so much from both of them. Jerry and KC....Your organizational skills will definitely be missed by all!
As for the future, I work full time and can't commit much time at this point but I would like to offer my assistance to the volunteers who will join the organizational team and lead us on.

The meeting took on a new light when KC & I both announced that we will be stepping down as co-organizers. This was not planned by either of us in advance. This is going require some additional people to take responsibility for the activities the two of us have been handling up to now but there were a number of volunteers willing to join a team to work out the plans for the next rendition of AZ SHUTTERBUGS-WEST.
