Re: [ntesla-38] Third annual meeting

Please relinquish my spot to someone else. It has been difficult finding time in my schedule to organize the conference. While I am not leaving the group, I can't commit the time to doing board member activities in the near future. Nor can I organize next year's conference.  I need to concentrate my time on business related matters. However, I am open to the possibility of doing a talk or two.

The board members and membership have a lot of talented individuals. I have had the pleasure with working with some of them, and can attest to their abilities. I have no doubt that others out there are willing to  become board members.

Dear Tesla Board Members and Advisors:

Ourc  third annual meeting and elections are approaching.  We have accomplished a lot the past two years, but can achieve even more in the next two.  It is important that we analyze out past work and make a plan for the next two years, the length of director and advisor terms.

Some members of the board have abandoned their roles, but we have also gained many new members who I believe are ready to become bigger contributors.  In order to properly plan for the future everyone needs to, in writing, tell us what they would most want to do, explain their experience and availability/anticipated time commitment.  This won't be contractual, but should be viewed as a promise nonetheless.  Please take this request seriously.  Telephone and in person conversations will not be as helpful for planning purposes and we will assume that those who do not put their interest in writing do not wish to be involved.

Also, we will have a meeting where everyone can join in on the discussion and members of the current board will decide whom to include based on suggestions and level of commitment.  We have had a lot of people offer good ideas, but then not follow through when it came time to do the work.  For this reason, we will try to get a firmer commitment from members.  The meeting will be held on September 7 from 5:15 to 7:00 PM at the Philadelphia City Institute at 1905 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA.  For more details about the meeting, visit

All board members and anyone else receiving this letter are expected to attend. If you do not attend and have not regularly attended meetings, absent written notification to the contrary, we will assume that you no longer wish to be involved.  Of course, if you cannot attend, we understand, but please let us know.  Also let us know if, for any reason, you are unable to continue to sit on the board and wish to relinquish your spot to someone else.

Please reply by September 1.
