I am formally announcing that I will be stepping as Guild Leader of The Guardians effective upon conclusion of Guild Leader Elections. I am not making this decision lightly. I had planned to serve a 2 year term, but real life and health issues have led me to this decision earlier than I would have liked. I feel I have done as much as I can at this point and that the guild needs a new captain to steer this great big ship of ours.
I have been in senior leadership for over 3+ years now as ADL, DL, and GL. I have loved my time serving the community. I have had the chance to work for a with a great number of people who truly love this guild. I know that the right person will step up to volunteer and lead us into a brighter future. Thank you everyone who has worked with me and supported me through this tough job.
This official notice of resignation will mark the beginning of an election cycle documented fully in the charter here http://www.guardianhq.com/pages/charter#electionprocess
. I would expect an announcement by Meg in the immediate future. I will remain as GL until the elections conclude and plan to fulfill my duties with 100% commitment.
I do want to say to any prospective applicants for the GL position to understand that this position takes a considerable amount of commitment. You will have good days and very bad days. There will be times you are beaming with joy. There will be times you want to crawl under a rock. Please understand this as you decide on whether you want and can dedicate yourself to such an endeavor.
