As I approached the middle of my term as 1994-95 VP for programs of the
Berkeley chapter of STC, the president, Rich Julius, asked casually one
day, "Have you ever thought of running for president?"

"No," I replied, "I think Clinton's doing a fine job."

But the suggestion stuck. I served two years as president, and I'm now
finishing my ONLY year as immediate past president. It's not that I don't
still have ideas about what we ought to be doing -- it's that the new
leaders have their own ideas, and they deserve a chance to try them.

Besides, I worked hard as a chapter president, and I accomplished a lot.
I deserve a chance to think about other things. I considered running for a
society-wide office, but I have too many other responsibilities to give
it my best shot. ...RM
