  1. Kudos to those putting together this group. It’s been some time since I’ve been involved in the WLS Community though I was once beyond active (in-person and online), and prior to my having had RNY in May ’03, I worked as a rehabilation counselor for the State of CA. My MA is in Rehab Counseling and I have post-grad work towards organizational development (which includes developing mission statements, goals, founding and developing organizations as well as running them, etc.). It looks like you are all off to a great start. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen and/or heard of some of those on your group’s advisory board.
