Hello @micahg, and thank you for your service on the DMB for all these
years (since 2011)!

However, I can't help but take note that even though you are a DMB
member, you did not attend a single DMB meeting in 2019.  Since quorum
has been a serious problem for the DMB, could you please provide some
insight about why you want to remain on the board, and what your
thoughts are about improving meeting attendance in the future?
