    01. Election Update
       The Leadership Committee is diligently working to finalize the candidate 
       slate by June 9. Following shortly, we will be opening elections. 
       Meanwhile, there's still a little bit of time to nominate yourself or a 
       fellow LOPSA member. Please contact the LC at leadership@lopsa.org to 
       nominate someone!

    02. Questions for Candidates?
       The elections are approaching quickly and we're trying something new with 
       this election. Do you have questions for the board candidates? Send your 
       questions to the Leadership Committee (LC) for them to be considered and 
       answered by prospective candidates! Please submit your questions to  
       leadership@lopsa.org by June 15 to ensure that they're considered.

    03. IT Paleontology: Digging for the Oldest Software in Your Shop
       A while back Esther Schindler asked for help with a article on the oldest 
       software used today and included a shout out to LOPSA.  You can see it at:

       an eye on the mailing list for an upcoming announcement about a presentation
       about automating database schema changes. Rob Ball has volunteered to help
       organize the club and he officially began helping in April. He has been a
