Way to go Jonica and Tanita. So Wayne, when are you going to write that book on "how to be a technical non-profit rainmaker"?

Martin - Our board approved a plan to raise $5 million over the next five years for a SITES Endowment Fund. If we achieve this lofty goal then I'll think about writing that book (smile)!
