Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Chairs,

I am pleased to re-appoint Rich Schwerdtfeger, and additionally appoint 
Joanmarie Diggs, as co-chairs of the Accessible Rich Internet 
Applications Working Group [1]. Rich retired from IBM at the end of 2016 
but continues as chair of the board of Knowbility, which now sponsors 
his ongoing work on ARIA. Joanie represents Igalia and from her work on 
the Orca screen reader brings additional technical leadership to the 
Working Group.

Many thanks to Rich and Joanie for offering their time to the ARIA 
Working Group.

This announcement follows section 3.1.1 [2] and 5.1 of the W3C Process 
Document [3].

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director;
