I would like to here the Board's thought about the recent direction in
Staffing. Also, I undertood David's earlier response regarding the
Compliance Diretor to mean that Compliance now reports to Legal and so
there is no intent to fill that position. Perhaps I misundertood, and
perhaps it isn't yet clear to Staff either.
