Dear [NAME],

As part of its efforts to continuously improve the Reps program, the Council recently
conducted a process to gather feedback from Mentors to identify areas of
improvement, fresh opportunities but also identify Reps who would
benefit from being relieved from their duties.

After a thorough and difficult review process, the Council has proposed that your
status as Rep be transitioned to Alumni. This means the expectations of this role are not longer applicable.

Your responsibilities as Reps will officially end on [DATE], and your
profile page deactivated.

The Council would like to thank you for all your hard work as a Rep and
wish you continued success as a valued Mozilla contributor. Should you have any
questions or wish to appeal this decision, please contact the Council in they next 7 days. 

Sincerely,
