This report was issued in June 2004 and covered the part of 2003 not included in May 2003's Annual Report. The site began to shift its focus from one of growth to one maintaining and paving a way for more controlled growth in the future. The message boards left EZboard and moved to boards hosed at Sandmashar.com. TarValon.Net began to become a premier community for Wheel of Time gatherings.

Administration

The very first Admin meeting was held in July, in Santa Clarita, California. It was at this meeting that departments were created, and department heads and staff were chosen to run them. The Hall's purpose shifted from serving as an advising and disciplinary body to that which now reviews and makes decisions on who shall achieve, and advance in, membership within the Tower.
