confusion and transitions

Yeah, there was an AD meeting Saturday...not a very long one, though jamestrainor and I hung out after the meeting to shoot the shit with Jeff S, the head of gaming & anti-marketing (HHO1/4K). Not much business, really, just announcements of people stepping down and their replacements for the most part - pkat will be taking over Ops, Matt "Water Buffalo" Hoffman gets Logistics, and Alan is now co-head of Security. I'm out of the hotel & registration jobs, and they're still looking for new meat people to replace me there. so, hey, eclectic_scoop, if you're moving down to the Twin Cities this coming school year, X up and you could find yourself running/helping to run the show as a department head/co-head. I told Lauren I was interested in working for her and tatsmaru in Volunteers next year if they were willing; they lost three of their staffers from this year, so unless they want to totally break in new people I figure I have a shot.

pkat was expecting me to have Registration stuff to pass on to Steph, but since they didn't remind me about it I didn't have anything for her. (Memo to self: finish the data entry on the walk-ups.) willow_one and I need to sit down with her to talk about transferring all the old ATC documentation. Right now most of it is on a ZIP disk, and while she could take it in that format, her PC is a little flaky and possibly dying. So that might not be the best option. I have the feeling that what with Convergence looming we probably won't get anything done until mid-July, but there's no real rush.

redmartel announced that the Board had shoveled out $25K in donations to various worthy causes with Japanese cultural flava. There was polite applause from the staff present, but I don't think most of them really care about it. Not that it really matters, so long as they don't get actively hostile to the notion, but I don't see that happening. Anyway, it's good to see that we've finally arrived at the point where we can make significant contributions to things like the Sister City program, various student & teacher exchange programs, local libraries & schools for anime/art/manga purchases, etc. I was a little annoyed that I missed out on the Board meeting where all this went down, but that's okay; as long as the thing gets done, that's what's important.
