Bob Baker, SBANE President, announces two staff changes within SBANE. Valerie Benedict, Communications and Programs Director for SBANE for the past nine years, has retired and will return to San Antonio, Texas. Valerie has accepted our offer to continue as SBANE's designer/developer, so you will still see her influence in our brochures and promotional materials. I am pleased to announce that Susan Barber has accepted the position of Communications and Programs Director for SBANE. Susan brings a wealth of experience to this position and is a welcome addition to our staff. Some of you may have already met Susan as she has been a familiar face at some of our events. Please join me in welcoming Susan and saying "good-bye and good luck" to Valerie.
