Why you ask? Read on.
As of about 5 minutes ago, I have tendered my two week notice of resignation from my position as Executive Director of Entertainment Group for Anime Expo / SPJA.
My last day of work in this position will be on April 14th, 2012.
It is my intention for the remaining two weeks to help wrap up any projects or contracts that I am working on for this year’s Anime Expo and transition ownership of them to Marc Perez, our CEO(firstname.lastname@example.org
), and or Kathy Moran, our Division Manager of Programming and Guest Relations Divisions (email@example.com
Should you wish to contact anyone at Anime Expo regarding Programming matters please write to Programming@anime-expo.org
. For any future Guest Relations inquiries please write to GR@anime-expo.org
While my decision to depart is not an easy one, I wanted to let you all know it has truly been my pleasure and honor to work with each of you. Some of you I have known for a great many years, others only met recently, over the years I have considered myself blessed to have had the opportunity to work with you all and wish you nothing but success.
Should you wish to keep in contact with me beyond April 14th, 2012 you are always welcome to email my personal email address or hear on the org .
How does this affect the AMV Contest? Well I don't seriously expect them to let me continue to run it. SO, I have already picked my successor/s. I am awaiting final approval before announcing them. Expect that answer later this week.
I am deeply truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause any of you.
Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I would like this transition to proceed as smoothly as possible so this year can continue to be a success.
Warm regards always,
Michael G. Underwood
