Response to ConsDistList 21:28 post

As most of you have probably read the recent ConsDistList 21:28 post, conservator Chris Augerson wrote a formal letter of opposition to the AIC Certification Plan.  It was well worded and I think pointed out many of the reasons that many conservators oppose certification.  I feel that (at least recently) those who are FOR certification have been getting more notice. 

Jeff Peachey, binder extraordinare, was so inspired by Chris’ post that he started a blog.  So please visit Jeff’s blog and post a comment:

Let your voice be heard.  Now is an important time, we are close to the final vote.
