Thanks Mark. Sounds great. I can help, if you'd like some.
As to timing and press release, etc.: let's say nominations until the end of the month. Then we can compile the list and confirm that nominations were received; take seconds at that time and confirm that all else is true and correct.
Let's say we make an announcement and release the list May 1. That would give everyone time to make sure the list is complete and that everyone is as happy with it as we're likely to get.
Does this work? Tell me if I'm off base.
Best Regards, Erick
