new President says hello
« on: February 17, 2004, 07:02:00 pm »

As was announced on the website yesterday, the FSP appointed me President for a six month term. I'm excited about the opportunity, and I look forward to working with the volunteers and the membership to help move the organization forward. I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself and also tell you about my first act as President.

You'll find my bio and a link to my weblog here: http://freestateproject.org/about/bios.jsp#phillips In brief, I am an accountant, manager, teacher, single mother, pilot, archer, runner, and long-time libertarian. I'm originally from California, have lived in various places out West, and currently live in Massachusetts. I see my role within the FSP as that of a facilitator... we have a great group of volunteers and a large membership with lots of great ideas, and I'm here to help pull those great ideas together & help make them happen.

I have a lot of ideas on how to move the organization forward, but for my first act as President I'd like to open communication channels between the membership & the FSP leadership. We have created a new discussion forum called "Ask The Leadership." I'd like to encourage the membership to ask questions of the FSP leadership via this forum so we can respond to your questions in an organized, public, efficient, and effective manner.

You'll find the new forum here: http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?board=57 We, the FSP Leadership, want to know your thoughts. We will monitor this forum & make every effort to respond in a timely manner.

Thanks for the warm welcome that so many have already shown me. I look forward to the day when we are all together in the Free State.

All the best,
Amanda Phillips

Amanda, glad to see you 'taking the reigns'.  I look forward to seeing the FSP progress under your leadership.  Please feel free to call me, day or night if you should need my help on anything. (my phone is simply off when I am not available to take your call, so don't worry about calling at a bad time).  

You have the capabilities to get a lot done in the FSP, please remember to pace your efforts, take some time for yourself and your little girl too!

Thank you so much for the offer of help. And thanks for all that you've done for the FSP. Please smack me in the head (metaphorically) if you see me wandering into a fire swamp. Your experience is valuable; thank you for sharing it.

Any thoughts on when you would move to NH?

Is your current employment such that you could commute from NH?

I'd like to move either this summer or next summer so I don't disrupt my daughter's school year. I could commute to my job from NH, but I'm still evaluating whether or not I want to do that.

And you?

I actually moved to Berlin in December.  If I can be of assistance in northern NH, please let me know.

I completely understand about not disrupting Elaine's school year.
