  34. 34. Comments from MembersSubject: Regrets I cant attend, but...Date: Tue, 3 May 2011 23:29:09 -0500From: Rasmussen Eric MD, MDM, FACP D <>To: Mark Prutsalis <>Dear Mark,Im deep in Mexico with very low bandwidth so I cant attend the Sahana meeting, but I d be grateful ifyoud share the following with our colleagues.Friends,Ive followed, distantly, over the past week, several dozen thoughtful messages from the Sahanamembership. Very nicely done by all hands, but particularly, Mark, yours. Ive watched our Sahana materialsdevelop over the past months and, in my view, your designs are solid and built collaboratively, yourpositions have been persuasive and well-phrased, and youve been polite and professional, as has been theoverall tone of the discussion, even when weve disagreed. The intelligence and intensity I ve seen flowingto you from the members and from you to the crowd reminds me why I so carefully shifted from a CEOposition to a VP position. Tough discussions, with legitimate perspectives, but youre at the center,accommodating all, yet keeping the organizations health uppermost. Lively spot to occupy and you did well.I do remember that yours is an uncompensated position and I see you bring your very best regardless.Thank you.We got a great deal hashed out publicly beforehand and the meeting should be more efficient as aconsequence. It was a bit painful sometimes, but not embarrassing to anyone. Congratulations.I wish all of you a calm, interesting, productive meeting.Eric Rasmussen 34
  35. 35. Comments from MembersPersonally, as a member I dont have any objections to the suggested changes, steps should be taken tomake SSF into a more sustainable operation with a clear focus and product definition. I have been satisfiedwith the sharing of information by you and others in the exploratory study group. For what its worthhaving attended one of the planning sessions, I was in agreement with the decisions that were being madeand the process in general. These types of hard decisions have to be made by the leadership group tomaintain or in this instance regain forward momentum in a ever changing environment. The disastermanagement/ICT space, isnt the same as it was when the tsunami hit back in 2005. Course corrections canalways be made as needed along the way – anonymous 35
