that I don't have lines in other waters. I'm always fishing around in lots
of different ponds. I'm plugging my personal network of contacts as well in
an effort to get more people to help out. Some of the pending appointments I
have out came from that channel.
BTW, the most effective "haul" from the CIS posting this fall was a flock of
typists to help Bill Spadafora rekey and format some technical material for
NARTS. My efforts to get more volunteer committee chairmen didn't bear a
whole lot of fruit, and I had to resort to other methods to get people for
the other NAR work I needed done.

with some decidedly mixed emotions, and understand why people on both sides
of the electronic highway feel as they do.
I hope that our financial review in Phoenix will allow us the room in the NAR
budget to fire up the alternate newsletter currently under development. This
will help those not connected to a network get better, more timely
Having said all this however, let me warn people that I cannot frankly manage
the NAR as well as we currently are (and there's still a LOT of work that
needs to be done) without my access to both CIS and the Internet. It simply
faster, and better for me to blast out email than it is to write or call.
Using the network allows me to get more done sooner, and I think that's
better for NAR members out there waiting for service.
