Shan has been the ICC Standards Coordinator for several years. Filling that valuable spot will be Shayne Wright. Jim, Shan, Shayne and the other officers of the ICC will need your support. If you'd like to get involved in the activities of ICC, see these guys or any of the other ICC officers.

Thanks Bill for all of the hard work!! Be sure to express your thanks to Bill for all that he has done. Of course, Bill doesn't exactly get to rest now.
