A few brief additions to the above results: Martin Zobel-Helas sought
another term and is therefore re-appointed to the board; I declined to
seek another term, and I am therefore no longer an SPI director.

I remain SPI President for now despite not being a director until a
replacement is chosen or until I explicitly resign from that role. The
new board is expecting to elect its 2019-2020 officers, which will
include a replacement President, at its August 12th board meeting.

Please rest assured that my departure is not a protest of any kind, and
is simply due to the increased demands of the rest of my life. I wish
SPI only the best.
