2004–2005: Transition Committee and Interim Board; Elections

The transition committee incorporated _The_System_Administrators_Guild_, a New Jersey Non-Profit corporation in November 2004, and became the interim Board of Directors, or _NewSAGE_. Throughout the fall of 2004 and spring of 2005, the Interim Board worked on the building blocks of the new organization, and laying the groundwork for the transition from USENIX. The Interim Board recruited a Leadership Committee (Greg Rose, Esther Filderman, Adam Moskowitz, Mario Obejas) to recruit candidates and oversee the election of the first full Board of Directors. Jesse Trucks and Matt Okeson-Harlow of Cyberius' Network volunteered to write the election software and conduct the online election, which was held in June 2005. The "election results":http://governance.lopsa.org/index.php/2005_Election_Results were announced on June 28, 2005.

Famous quotes containing the words interim, committee, transition and/or elections:

    If I be left behind,
    A moth of peace, and he go to the war,
    The rites for which I love him are bereft me,
    And I a heavy interim shall support
    By his dear absence. Let me go with him.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    What a wise and good parent will desire for his own children a nation must desire for all children.
    —Consultative Committee On The Prima. Report of the Consultative Committee on the Primary School (HADOW)

    A transition from an author’s books to his conversation, is too often like an entrance into a large city, after a distant prospect. Remotely, we see nothing but spires of temples, and turrets of palaces, and imagine it the residence of splendor, grandeur, and magnificence; but, when we have passed the gates, we find it perplexed with narrow passages, disgraced with despicable cottages, embarrassed with obstructions, and clouded with smoke.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    In my public statements I have earnestly urged that there rested upon government many responsibilities which affect the moral and spiritual welfare of our people. The participation of women in elections has produced a keener realization of the importance of these questions and has contributed to higher national ideals. Moreover, it is through them that our national ideals are ingrained in our children.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)
