I would like you to help me welcome a new member of our staff. For the last few months, Deane Buchannan Stuart, a talented web designer from South Africa, has been assisting us as an unofficial consultant on the topic of branding, marketing and web design. He has been tremendously generous with his time and energy and expertise. After a discussion today, we together decided to form a more concrete alliance. As such, I have just had the distinct pleasure of formally inviting him to our staff as a volunteer technical and research assistant to the Institute. Deane joins the other competent and enthusiastic staff of the Institute and helps make our organization truly international! He brings a wry sense of humor and a commitment to issues of human rights and tolerance. Welcome, Deane!
