JERRY: Hi, I'm Jerry Nelson and I represent Region III for the NAD. The past several months have been very exciting. Many state associations in Region III are very focused on legislative action within their state. They've been busy discussing and planning various legislative bills. Some bills made it through while other bills go back to the drawing board. It is important that state associations are continuing the great work they're doing to make change for the better in the deaf and hard of hearing community. I have one quick announcement to make. Larry Evans, my co-representative for Region III, has decided to resign and I thank Larry for his many years of service for the NAD. I'm excited to share that the Board just approved a replacement for Region III — Holly Ketchum from Arkansas. I'm excited Holly will be joining me for the remainder of Larry's term, 16 months. I look forward to working with Holly and you all. Thank you.
