Frank, Tyler, Board, Finance committee,

I'm becoming acutely aware that my time is being stretched to  
extraordinary levels these days -- and that my treasurer duties are  
suffering a lot as a consequence. Amazing how a newborn at home  
combined with the never ending pressures of running a business can  
leave you without time to even think ...

As a consequence, I'm wondering if I can really do the role of  
Treasurer justice in these circumstances. If I'm truly honest with  
myself -- I don't see how this can get any better for at least the  
next 6 months - and it's clear that I've been neglecting things for  
far too long.

Is there anyone from the board willing to take this on? As we're  
currently setup, I'm realizing that this really takes a couple of  
hours a week and in truth I have about -10 hours available to me per  
week at the moment.

Obviously I can try to continue to muddle along if no one is willing/ 
able to step in -- but I fear that in this case things won't get  
better anytime soon.
