Via North American Commodore Eric Anderson:

Our class is in need of  new Rear Commodores for the Central and Eastern Regions. Both Bill Cutting and Chad Atkins have indicated that they are not able to continue in the roles since both have young families. We thank them for all the hard work they put into the class, but now it is time for someone else to step up. Normally the Governing Committee does not get involved in regional affairs, but since the regions have not been able to identify replacements, we are putting out the word.
The Central Region is hosting the World Championships next year. A new Commodore needs to be picked in the next few weeks since planning for the Gold Cup needs to start ASAP. Please, if you are from the Central Region and willing to take on the responsibility let us know. We need to set the dates for the event soon and if have we don’t have a Central Region Rear Commodore, we will be forced to have a different region host.
