Hi, Benni,

If no one has nominated Richard Chesser, I'd be happy to do that.  

I'd love to come up with some North Americans.  Andrew Hankinson comes to mind.  I'd want to know whether he has the time.  He has a complicated life right now.

Perry asked me if I would run, and I expressed reluctance.  I really cannot imagine another four years.  I can imagine filling in informally if some should unexpectedly resign, and of course I can always work on a designated project without being on the board.

All the best,
