THANK YOU FROM ALLIANCE MEMBERS AND PARTNERS AND INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN FUTURE ACTIVITIES


On behalf of the members of the Alliance and those joining the new National Partnership, we want to thank the nation's Governors, Mayors, County Administrators and State Chief Information Officers, for your past interest in and support for our work on regulatory streamlining. We hope that you find this fourth annual report and the work products it contains to be useful tools in your efforts to protect your citizens, promote the growth of your communities and better recover from future disasters that may impact your region. The materials on this CD-ROM have been cross-referenced for ease of use and the link to our new website will provide you and your staff with updated information and our future work products.

We hope too that you will share this CD-ROM report with your staff who are responsible for public safety, economic development, disaster management and information technology and encourage them to become active participants in our ongoing project. Information on how to join the Alliance/National Partnership and on our high level national conference on streamlining will be posted to our new website: www.natlpartnerstreamline.org in mid-August.

We also want to thank again the National Governors Association, National Association of Counties, U.S. Conference of Mayors and National Association of State Chief Information Officers for their input to our work and for distributing this year's annual report to their members.

Lastly we want to thank all of our current and past Alliance members and the new organizations and companies that are joining our effort for their input and support to the production of this CD-ROM and many of the streamlining materials that it contains. We especially want to thank the past and present Alliance members who have sponsored the production of these reports: the U.S. Department of Energy, Department of Housing and Urban Development, National Institute of Standards and Technology, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Committee on Construction and Building and the sponsor for this year's report, Hansen Information Technology, Inc.
