The Board is pleased that Bonnie Gramlich and Joe Whitenton have agreed to serve as ombuds for the Fellowship. (Ombuds is better than ombudsman and less awkward than ombudsperson.) They are available should concerns about the Fellowship arise and are available as an additional resource.
Bringing issues directly to the Board is still welcome.
