The lizard’s seeing-eye that illustrates the top of this post indicates that I am asking you to be my seeing eye. This post requires any helpful response you can make. Am I missing any boards or committees? Do you have any information on who are their present members? Do you know what they are paid?

Please send me an email at the above address. We will then look at them one by one in subsequent postings.
