Melinda G. Pennington, ARD responsible for our Family Groups and Group Leaders, and I have completed our review of the Group Leaders. As a result of that process, some Group Leaders have decided not to return but in all but one case, they turned over their duties to their partner who has been working with them. In the other case, the Group Leader was not invited to return.
Here is a recap of Group Leader changes:
1. After many years as the Group Leader for Group 8, Sue Webb resigned as the Group Leader for Group 8 leaving Rod Pennington as the Group Leader.
2. Ralph Pennington, Jr., Group Leader for Group 14 was not invited to return as Group Leader.
3. After many years as the Group Leader for Group 28, Paul Pennington resigned as the Group Leader for Group 28 leaving Frankie Perry as the Group Leader.
4. Peggy Pennington, Group Leader for Group 2, has resigned as the Group Leader for Group 2 but recommended a new Doug Pennington to be the new Group Leader. Another message will follow with that announcement.
All other Group Leaders accepted our invitation to return.
Melinda and I thank all of you for helping us with this process. We worked hard to complete this process with as much sensitivity as possible and in a timely manner. It took longer than we had originally planned but we did complete the process per direction from our Board at their meeting in Raleigh, NC.
Thank all of you for your continued help and support. Melinda and I look forward to working with you in 2009.
