Everett Wiginton

Paul and I are happy to announce that Everett Wiginton (known here on Neopoet as Rett) has agreed to join us as on the board of Neopoet.

The board of trustees is a (now) three person group of members that sets strategic direction for Neopoet.

Rett has been a Neopoet member since May, 2008, and he's served about every way a member could: he's a member of the Advocates program, was a member of the AEC, the group that runs Advocates, for four straight terms (July 2008 - July 2009), including two as chair, and he's been very active in helping us host and administer our chat program. Most recently, he's helped us by acting as the administrator for Neopoet from October, 2010, to present.

Rett has a number of talents that we think will help in running Neopoet. He's a published author, and has significant management experience from the commerical world, including a thirty-one year career in the chemical industry.

We are very pleased to have Rett join us on our board of trustees. Please join us in welcoming him!
