I wholeheartedly agree with both James's and Dan's sentiments here, but 
more urgently, we need someone to announce changes on TEI-L.  It seems 
that the outgoing chair is the person to do this!  Is there any other 
news from the Board that we can hear about as well, such as the date and 
location of the 2011 conference?
