      I understood what you meant Mary Kay. Reading back, I can see how that might have been misconstrued. Even at that, it would have been okay.

      And again, my semantics are just terrible today. What I mean by “don’t have to”, is that I would love to be of assistance, and enjoyed it very much last time, so am willing to, but I would also be very glad to step aside – I don’t have an investment in doing it, and will not be hurt if SACC says no, let’s go a different route, and definitely not upset if someone else, or many other people step forward to help out and take on the co-role, or even volunteer to do it on their own.

      All best, and forgive my not very clear language today – too much happening at my college at the moment!

      Sorry, that was quite brief, while I was sitting at the end of a meeting (yes, getting antsy and checking e-mail) … I absolutely do not have to do this, and time would be a little tight. I noticed Jessica willing to take on a co-Pres role. I did this with Maren Wilson when we had a sort of emergency (even closer to the time of the upcoming annual meeting when a President couldn’t serve). It was great to have someone to work with, and we did get very good feedback from others, but I’m afraid I have learned much more since that time about what level of organization is required. I have no specific thoughts about place, etc., but would be happy to take on part of the work and collaborate, with much input from elsewhere. I also have a much better understanding of details that are not just the annual meeting (AAA Board roles, reports, that sort of thing). I would have to dredge up old notes.

      But I would not want to put myself forward at all if we have other members who are able to do this… or if Jessica decides she is willing to do it on her own.

      I have done this before in an emergency and now have a much clearer idea of what it takes and could assist in a co- role if needed.

      We have come to a crisis point: this is Wednesday, February 12, and we still have no candidates, volunteers for the next SACC President Elect. We have some excellent candidates for VP Membership and Development and for Secretary. I must submit a slate to AAA by February 17. I have no idea what to do. I will send of a query today, to see what the consequences of not having anyone to fill that position might be for our organization status in AAA.
      It is just this simple: someone needs to accept the role. As I have said before, we have a precedent for two co-Presidents, so the load can be split.
      I don't know what else to do.
