I write to advise the community that we have successfully brought a 
bookkeeper in to work with Michael Davis on a part-time basis, Tricia 
Hoffman. Trish was referred to us by our audit firm and has more than 
ten years of complicated full-cycle accounting experience.  During an 
initial transition phase, Michael will be working with Trish to learn 
the accounts and work with our internal processes.  Following the 
certification and publication of our audited financial statements, we 
will resume publication of our financials, on what I anticipate will be 
a monthly basis.  Trish has agreed to provide professional support for 
our accounting functions on a contract basis.  After we have worked 
together for a while, we will reassess based on the amount of time that 
is appropriate for the tasks required.

mav has had an extraordinary influence on WMF and is to be heartily 
congratulated for his willingness to jump in and work hard, especially 
in the earliest days of the projects.  As I have come to appreciate the 
work that must be done to keep things going in the office, mav's energy 
and initiative become all the more apparent.  I'm sure he will continue 
to contribute in multiple ways going forward.

Thanks, mav!
