Thank you for your years of service, Amar! And Sue's as well!

And a very warm welcome to Matt and Adam!

IBET first became a Yahoo group in 2003, but it actually existed with a different sponsoring group years before that. I recall posting to IBET back in 1996, but it was probably around for a year or so before that - I doubt that any of that earlier stuff is archived in any way. How time flies.

Amar, thanks for your stewardship of this great
resource. And, thanks and best luck to IOS, Adam, and Matt
for taking on this responsibility. As a long-time Chicago
birder, I rely on this list and hope to see it thrive.

Respected IBET
members, 
For the last 3 years
I’ve had the great pleasure of moderating this group, but
I recently decided it was time to pass the torch due to a
shortage of time on my part. 
The Illinois
Ornithological Society has graciously accepted
responsibility and ownership of the listserv. Effective
today, IBET will be managed by IOS, with Matt Igleski and
Adam Sell acting as new Admins. I know IOS will
  do a great job upholding the mission of this list, first
established by Sue Friscia in 2003. We’re all indebted to
Sue for her longtime commitment to Illinois Birders
Exchanging Thoughts.
 
Please join me in
officially welcoming Matt and Adam as IBET’s new
Admins!
 
Kindest regards,
Amar Ayyash
Orland Park
