What's happening in Midwest?

I'm interested in what's happening in USAF West because this is obviously very significant but I was wondering, what's been happening in Midwest Aikido Federation? They have lost quite a few dojos in the last two years whose senseis were long time loyalists. Are the plans to continue with the "Committee" style of leadership" in the absence of a shihan? Has the leadership of USAF been proactive in helping Midwest? It seems that they were not well prepared for the transition after Tohei sensei's death. Does anyone know what the plan is?

Yep. It seems that some additional senior instructors and their dojo from the USAF Western region have resigned as well. I noticed their absence after looking over the Western region's revised listing of member dojo and certified instructors.
