We are very pleased to announce that John and Leslie Webb will be taking over as Administrators of this resource. John was Administrator a short while back and is returning along with his wife Leslie. We have come a long way. Those who remember we started about ten years ago with just a list of posts, everything mixed together, no images. Today we have multiple areas of interest and many useful tools to help us share the knowledge and enjoy the resource. There is much more potential available here and with your help the NAWCC will look to grow this and other web resources. Current projects include a unified (single) log in to access all that the NAWCC offers on the web. Over time we have developed some resources "independent" of the NAWCC server. This has created a frustrating separation for our users as it required multiple registrations and log-in's. . It has also been a barrier to traffic in resources such as the eMart. The unified or single log-in will allow for a seamless transition across resources. This will generate traffic and increased interest across all our resources. The eMart will be updated and although it will start out again with a "Classifieds" style an Auction format is planned. Much of this is in the development stage but reflects a commitment to building globally accessible NAWCC resources for both the public and members alike. These resources will promote our public educational goals and provide members with resources that add value to their membership. I will be leaving the Message Board to help with the upgrade. We have been here a while and we have built a great community. Like all communities we have our disagreements. There is no requirement to agree, differing viewpoint often offer insights not readily discovered when everyone nods their head in unison. Where I do hope we can agree is that we move forward with a new commitment to civility and respect for fellow users. There isn't a place here for the name calling and continuance of old animosities. This place was started simply to share the knowledge and share the enjoyment. Let's keep that as our focus as we welcome John and Leslie to the resource. Thank you to all who contribute and share, thank you to all those who work to bring you the resource. Sincerely Ray Fanchamps..
