    Hi Everyone!

    I wanted to let you all know that this is my last day as your (official) community manager. I cannot tell you how thrilled I have been at the awesome success of this community, and to those of you who have kept talking, kept replying, and kept coming back, I can't thank you enough. When I started working at the National Trust four years ago, this was just something we wanted to do. It is thanks to so many people for their hard work and passion that this became a real thing. A successful community cannot exist without the dedication of its members, and those of you who write posts and answer questions are the reason this place is still thriving. I will certainly continue to be a member as a graduate student and can't wait to see this community grow.

    On that note, I'm so excited to introduce you to your new community manager, Colleen Danz! Colleen has been behind the scenes of this project from beginning to end. She is, officially, the Manager of Forum Marketing for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Unofficially, she is the office jokester, the biggest PastForward cheerleader, and a great colleague and friend. I'll let her introduce herself to you all...

    Thanks Rebecca for all your hard work and enthusiasm in launching Forum Connect ... and building it to what it is today!
    I'm excited to join you all here as your new Community Manager and see where we can go with this community. Feel free to message me directly with any ideas, concerns, or issues.
    And ... as Rebecca noted, I do like jokes. My jokes are more of the "dad joke" variety, the ones that make people roll their eyes ... like, Why did the yogurt go to the art museum? ... Because it's cultured!
    I unfortunately (though my co-workers might say fortunately) don't have any preservation "dad jokes" so if you have any, feel free to share!
    Looking forward to what's to come for Forum Connect, and thank you and goodbye, Rebecca!

    Good luck with your next adventure @Rebecca Bice! You will have a wonderful time pursuing a graduate degree and expanding your toolkit.

    @Colleen Danz, I will work on having preservation dad jokes ready for PastForward! ​​

    Good bye Rebecca! Seems your tenure was brief even though you were here a long time. Thanks for your work! Good luck in your next phase!
