Special Election

Hello everyone,

We need to hold a special election to fill the vacant seats for HNET-STAFF Editor and Mike Innis-Jimenez's unexpired term (to Dec. 31, 2015). We also need to appoint a Treasurer and Secretary. Peter does most of the bookkeeping so the Treasurer's office is not that onerous. The Secretary takes minutes at our quarterly meetings.

Please ask the editors you know to run for these offices.
