Current committee stepping down on June 9th 2007

On the 9th of June the current committee will resign their positions in
IrelandOffline.

The current committee has been running for nearly three years and took
IrelandOffline to new heights and professionalism.

However it has been a long and tiring road and the current committee
feels that now, with massive changes in the market, it is time for new
fresh and invigorating blood to take up the reigns and lead
IrelandOffline to greater successes.

The committee would like to thank the previous committees that lead
IrelandOffline and in particular thank the volunteers, members and forum
posters who contributed to the current
successes of IrelandOffline.

Between now and the 9th of June the committee would like volunteers for
the new committee to step forward either in public on the forum or in
private by email. In the event of no one stepping forward the committee
will then vote to dissolve IrelandOffline.

In that event a number of steps will take place to ensure the privacy of
member mailing lists etc which will be detailed in public should the
need arise.

Regards

John

Vice Chairman IrelandOffline

Very big shoes to fill. Fair play to the current committee for their fantastic work.

They've left a big mark on the Irish internet landscape, with IO being the main source of unbiased information on the provision and access of competitive broadband to the media.

Comreg, however, have only hindered consumers and IO in the last 2 years IMO (e.g the most expensive line rental in EU). ComReg have also completely ignored IO's many press releases and treated the committee and the organisation with utter contempt. And in the face of the passive-agressive crap, the committee still built up a significant media presence. Something Comreg couldn't replicate.

I hope that John and Damien will continue to enjoy the success that IO had on many occasions. My best regards.

Well done to ye all for the nth time. I hope people will step up to the plate to take over, as I believe there's still plenty of room for a pressure group in the area. And the last thing ye want is some tit as interim chair again.

I'll echo the sentiments above, particularly with regard to Damien's and John's future success. You and the rest of the committee have done a sterling job over the past few years.

It would be a shame if no-one stepped in to carry on the fight, as it's far from over. Having built up a superb media presence, it seems only right that the work should continue.

Well done Damian and all the Committee. We all owe you a massive thanks for the work you did which literally got us on the internet map. Goodness knows where we would be without your considerable efforts on our behalf..

No doubt the 'Tit' referred to above was only doing his best as well. ?
