I received an email recently from Rus Bowden expressing the desire and need to find a new managing editor. The IBPC may become defunct unless a new managing editor is found before June 30th.
To all IBPC reps and directors,
I gave notice to everyone over 8 months ago that I would no longer be the managing editor for IBPC as of June 30.
A couple months ago, against my better judgment, and outside my own plans for my life, it fell upon me to find a replacement. No one else was attempting to.
I am too sick to be suddenly trying to replace myself in this position. This is absurd. I am now put off that first, it is falling on me at all, and second, that no one else seems to want to take a turn at the position, nor try to help the directors find a new m.e., including the other directors.
I will not be the managing editor as of June 30. This is not sudden on my part, but done with months and months of notice to all concerned. As I have repeated mentioned, I have only been the interim manager until a replacement for Gina Bryson could be found any way.
Please help out.
Michael Neff, managing Editor of Web Del Sol/IBPC <email@example.com> replied to one of our sister board members' comments with:
As the official "owner" of IBPC, it would be perfectly fine if the new managing editor monetized the IBPC website, if that makes a difference. Web del Sol would banner the site and steer more traffic. A few banners and some google CT would net a few hundred a month. Nothing to start a political campaign with, but several bottles of darn good wine possible.
The managing editor would keep 100% of any revenue from the site. My word, before all.
If you or anyone you know might be interested in tackling this position, please don't hesitate to contact Rus or myself.
