Many changes have occurred that have me waist deep in paper.

These changes, I hope, will be welcomed by all, as it is the intent of the Executive and Central Council to ensure that they keep current on changes that are occurring in other regions in North America.

Many volunteer hours have been spent, over the last few months, researching what other regions are doing and what benefits or drawbacks may be associated with their systems.

Some changes will be seen for the upcoming season. Others are slated for 2006.

I hope everything goes smoothly,
Diana Riley
Executive Assistant PHRF-LO
