|04:30 pm - More on nominations|
I have declined all nominations for ADF office.
I do not believe myself ready to do those jobs, nor am I able to do them at this time. In particular, certain intricacies in ADF's international scene have led me to reconsider running for a number of them, as have my own needs and those of my Grove.
I had a deep, definite experience last night that showed me that I wasn't going to run for these offices; indeed, I have to re-focus on certain other things instead.
Thank you to those who had faith in me. I apologize that I will not fulfill your hopes for those offices this year. I am sure someone else will manage quite effectively in each of them.

It's often harder to say no than to say yes. Good for you for knowing what was best for you.
Though I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed that you won't be the site of the national meeting-- I might have actually attended that one! ;)
Best for ADF, too. Then again, it might have been good for me, but I was far more worried about ADF. It's too valuable to me.
As to the Annual Membership Meeting site, well, I figured I wouldn't try, even though I was able to come up with a good reason why they should let me run. . .
Besides, the girlfriend did say "no go"
