The Fund leadership changes, Order Delivery Issues, March Madness Begins

Dear Members,

BIG NEWS!  We have a big change in leadership here at The Fund coming in early 2022.  Both our CEO, Jimmy Jones, and our President, Gwen Geier, will be retiring in January 2022 after decades of service to The Fund.  But do not be concerned!  The Fund will be in very, very good hands.  Jeff Rogero will step into the position of CEO/President, Deanna Bolger will become our Chief Operating Officer and Ernie Houck will become our Chief Strategy Officer.  I will be continuing as Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel.  I have no doubts at all in the abilities of Jeff, Deanna and Ernie to take the torch and move The Fund forward in service to our Members.

That's all for this week.  Let me know how we can help you.
