HIAWG colleagues,

After speaking with Jim Kragh, we decided to cancel the call tomorrow and reconvene at our usual time in two weeks on Thursday, June 30th at 2 PM ET.

Jim said nothing new has transpired with his group though he is working with Leadership.  Yesterday was Colin's final official meeting as Executive Director though we are hoping he will join us in some capacity in the future.

Along with "reopening" we might be seeing the start of a Summer Slowdown.  The Carin Alliance cancelled its call also.

Information Blocking got a bit of an audience at the Annual AMA meeting that ended today.  There were a number of other IT issues considered.

Hi Tom and everyone.

Yes, well my handover was very recently stepped up to the surpise of pretty much everyone,  so I'm sorry that I was not able to give advance notice of my imminent step back.

The new ED will be announced shortly and I am working with the person on the handover. Doubtless they will come onto a HIAWG call and introduce themselves tho' it is someone widely known in the industry. 

So it just leaves me to say thank you to you all for your support of Kantara and for your support of me personally. It has been deeply appreciated. All the best!
