Well, unfortunately, I'm one of those people who like change, and I'm ready
for a new logo. Not to design, as I can't even do stick figures, but to
have a contest.
I'd like to see one readily available, so guess I would have to go with a
vote of the AB, which doesn't necessarily mean the members couldn't
participate, but taking comment, and voting as the volunteers in their area
