IJSBA wishes everyone a happy 2019.  IJSBA is lucky to be headquartered in the Silicon Valley area of Northern California.  The technology epicenter of the world affords us high rents and labor costs as the pool of STEM talent in this area drives all prices upwards.  Somehow, the nucleus of technology does not extend the same benefits when it comes to repair and maintenance of our infrastructure.  Last week, the coastal town of Half Moon Bay enjoyed 18 hours of no internet, cable, and very limited cell phone reception on Thursday and then, again, on Friday.  This cut short our productivity last week and we will be working overtime this week.  Thanks for nothing Comcast/Xfinity.  

  In any event, we spent last week listening to your petitions about hulls and everything before the tentative rule changes are posted for public comment.  Those will appear in the next 24 hours and we will prepare for your comments.  Please notice the following office hours for January:
