Default Welcome the newest member to the BOD

Well folks,

Much thought has gone into adding our newest member to the Board of Directors. I just spoke with Mark "fishmonger" Keller and he has accepted a position on our BOD. Mark has been a long time member of NGTO and is never one to mince his words. He always says it straight and has offered help countless times. Mark brings with him a varied set of skills and has keen business sense. I'm sure he will continue to shape NGTO long into the future.

Without further adieu, please join me in welcoming Mark to the BOD.

Congrat's to Mark as a new director and to NGTO for having the fortune to have another particularly worthy member join the Board of Directors.

GatorByte, with the exception of that "Swamp Angel" kook, you have a pretty decent BOD to conduct, maestro!

It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

He promised to lower taxes, secure our borders, and reduce spending!

New BOD members are hand picked by current voting BOD based on a list of pertinent criteria. Many folks forget that NGTO is a fully functioning non-profit business and those selected are chosen for their background and skills needed to ensure continued smooth operations of the non-profit component of NGTO. If you want to call that a good old boys club, I guess you can.
