Congrats to all these hard-working members, you are sure to be busy during this holiday season! These guys (and lady) have worked their butts off and deserve some recognition and some extra responsibilities.

Additionally, we are disbanding the Marketing Team. It was a great idea that had a lot of hard work and effort put into it, but unfortunately we just do not see a need to keep it around for now - but maybe it will be brought back in the future! We are also going to be removing having 'manager' positions, and just have a BD in charge of each team - with the exception of the TA team. Nishok has been around this place forever, was a BD even before I was, and has proven time and time again that he can successfully lead a team...so, for now, we are leaving him as the manager of the TA's!

And lastly: we will be having a community meeting on Sunday, the 16th of December. The time is TBD, and expect at least a CA+ meeting to follow.

Thanks everyone, enjoy your holidays!
