Tom Oglesby was elected as the NASG Secretary in 2015. However, due to family obligations, he is no longer able to fulfill his term. The NASG BOT unanimously approved Andy Malette as the new NASG Secretary, to complete Tom's term. We wish to thank Tom for his time and dedication to the organization.

NASG president Will Holt, former president Bill Winans, and NASG webmaster Peter Vanvliet have decided to close the "nasgmembers" Yahoo! Groups discussion group, because there has been no activity in well over two years, and only about 150 people ever signed up for it (less than 10% of the NASG membership, and a number of those are probably invalid anymore). Most communication between the membership can now be handled by the Dispatch, this web site, and the NASG Facebook page.
