I wanted to update you on a couple of items. First, we have a change in interest group chair for 2014. Danamarie Every Gallagher is unable to serve as chair for the coming year. In her place, Laura Davis from Harrisburg Area Community College will move up her appointment as chair from 2015 to 2014 and she will serve as the interest group program planner for the 2014 convention. This leaves Becky Townsend from Manchester Community College in the role of vice chair and so she will plan the G.I.F.T.S. program for 2014 and serve as the interest group program planner for 2015.
Second, at the convention in Pittsburgh, we voted to amend our bylaws to create a secretary position with the individual serving for two years. Once the edits to the bylaws are made, they will be sent out for review and we can either vote on them ahead of next year’s convention or at our 2014 business meeting.
Thanks for helping to make the convention in Pittsburgh a great success for our interest group. I hope that you enjoyed the experience and we look forward seeing you in Providence next year.
