(1) Cass Hartnett "Moving West"

As I have had the opportunity to tell many of you in person this past week, I will be moving to Tacoma, WA at the end of this summer, to seek my fortune! I have thoroughly enjoyed my four years of work here in the documents community and my ten years in the state of Michigan. My significant other has landed a good job in Tacoma and I have decided to see what the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer. I will wax more eloquent/ sentimental at the June 10 GODORT of Michigan meeting, but I just wanted to get the word out. Thanks for the warmth and supportiveness of this particular group ... and you're all still stuck with me until late July!

(2) Godort of Michigan Election News

It is my pleasure to announce the names of those individuals who have agreed to run for openings on the 1996-1997 GODORT of Michigan Executive Board: In light of the Bylaws and previous practice, I will assume Past-President. We will surely miss Cass Hartnett in this position, but I will try to provide continuity at least. I have asked Michael McDonnell to stand for re-election as Treasurer and he has agreed to do so.

Elections will be conducted on June 10th at the GODORT of Michigan Annual Meeting. If you have any questions or would also like to run for any of office, please contact me.
