This email serves as my notice of availability to serve as a GPCA GPUS Delegate or alternate -- with the following understandings and qualifications: I am submitting this "application" with significant reluctance and reservations due to existing responsibilities in my GPCA work as CCWG Coordinator and an active ERWG participant (each of which is expected to continue for the next two years). Accordingly, I have serious concerns about the amount of time and focus I actually may have for additional GPCA commitments. I am submitting this application on the basis that I will agree to be a delegate or alternate only if filling that position is necessary to provide the GPCA delegation with its full complement of delegates under present or future GPUS rules.

If I were to become a delegate or alternate, I would expect my focus to be as a California contact for the GPUS Coordinated Campaigns Committee. I already have advised Greg Gerritt and Brent McMillan that I am willing to act in that capacity (particularly since there is no one in the GPCA Delegation who has volunteered to do so for more than a year) because it seems consistent with my work in the CCWG. My expectations for the delegation are that it be able to act collectively in a collaborative fashion, that each delegate and alternate participate in at least one GPUS committee, and that the delegation (including alternates) provide at least one delegation liaison to each GPCA SC/WG.

A partial summary of my background and experience is as follows:
