To the community,

MacEnterprise is a 501c3 organization; however, due to a lack of time and resources the current members of the steering committee are unable to take advantage of this status to expand what MacEnterprise can offer to the community. Therefore, after careful consideration the steering committee has resolved to:

1. Dissolve the corporation in the coming months.
2. Disband the steering committee, with no immediate successors.

Because the mailing list continues to be a fantastic and useful resource for Macintosh administrators of all levels, it will continue unchanged. The current website, hosted through Google, will also remain intact; however, no sustained effort will be made to add additional content.

In light of this announcement, we believe the future of MacEnterprise depends on the community to decide what direction it should take. Please direct any questions, comments, and/or ideas regarding this matter to
