[Scott said:] W1th 121 active members now, UBL may expect to see more
members coming and going than smaller committees.  Those 21 notices *may*
reflect changes initiated anytime since March 2003, when we transitioned to
the current database. (though the few I've already looked at ranged back
only as far as about 18 months) Nonetheless, please forward those 21 members
to me, so I can investigate their departure.
