Strange that there are no editors "in chief" on the CSME board.
Are magazine editors today overworked? Or do they simply not care?
Why, in my day....

Good question. In my case, I'm quite pleased that Bob has stepped up; he'll make a great prez. I would get involved in a lesser capacity, but I'm already tied up with NMAF and Magazines Canada duties (not to mention my job, family life, side interests and son's rep hockey ambitions). I suspect many other editors "in chief" are similarly preoccupied. However, it would be nice to see more of us pitch in and volunteer, if possible. At any rate, I don't think it's some kind of indictment on CSME.

Who knew they were looking for board members? Not me, and I've been a dues-paying member since 1995.

Anonymous, you sound pretty adept at keeping you identity well...anonymous...maybe the CSME didn't know you were interested? Could it be time for you to stand up and be counted?
