A couple of furniture moving changes have happened in the program office 
recently. Onno Kluyt, replaces Rob Gingell as the JCP Chair and Aaron 
Williams transitions from EC Manager to Manager of the Program 
Management Office (PMO). This should be a very seamless transition since 
both Onno and Aaron have been involved in the JCP for some time and Rob 
will still be involved in the JCP program moving forward. 
Congratulations to Onno and Aaron!
