Now that we have finished with the recent phase of major systems design, I have turned my attention to a fine-tuning of the corporate structure. The position of VPPolicies & Rules, which has been vacant for some time, has now been eliminated altogether. There was always a great deal of overlap between this position and all the other VP positions, and those responsibilities have been absorbed by the relevant VPs.
At the same time, I would like to welcome back Robert (bear_music) as Advisor to the President. I will be tapping into his particular expertise in communications, and making use of his long experience in Elite for advice on various issues. Let me emphasize that this position of Advisor carries no functional or line authority whatever. Robertís primary responsibility will be to help me fine-tune our manuals and other communications, and he reports directly to me.
Welcome back, Robert!
