OpenMPE loses savvy director

Without too much explanation, OpenMPE's director Donna Garverick announced that board member Bill Lancaster has tendered his resignation from the board, less than six months after Lancaster ran for election to the post-2006 3000 advocacy group.

Lancaster received a leave of absence from the board "awhile back" according to Garverick, with the agreement that his situation would be revisited in mid-August.

The issues that were behind Bill’s original request have not resolved themselves, and he felt it was best to resign. The board really was disappointed that Bill left the board.  Bill is such a strong advocate and a very sensible (business) person. For the short amount of time that he was attending our meetings, he was a valuable contributor. He’s going to be missed.

Lancaster told us last month he has been taking on extra duties at his employer, Lund Performance Solutions, in the face of a temporary family crisis on the staff.
