I've been in Colombia for?3 weeks, thus my missing meeting(s) and emails... good luck on your new job and move.

I have been coming to the Spanish meetup for over three years and have been the organizer for the last year, but my job situation has required that I step down. I will be moving back to Akron sometime soon, and until then I need to travel too much on my job to be able to plan meetings. Robert Patterson has agreed to become the new organizer and will do a great job. He has been a regular since joining the group in December. I have been impressed at how well he has learned the language through self-instruction. This is a tough way to learn but he has done amazingly well, and in May he took a trip to Spain where he could learn even more.
Cathy Adams will remain an assistant organizer. She is a native Peruvian and has been a great help for us, answering questions if we need to know the correct way to say something and sharing her perspectives on Latin American culture.
With Robert and Cathy in charge the group will be in good hands. I won't be able to make the next meeting but will try to get to one before I head back north.
