By Communications Chair Jim Laffer
The main news for the Communications Committee this quarter is that I will be stepping down as Communications Chair. There are various reasons for this decision, but primarily it’s just time for someone else to take the reins. The ALDA Board is interviewing candidates and a new chair will be named shortly. I will stay on to help them get up to speed and show them the systems that are in place to make their job easier.
Other than that, there hasn’t been much to report recently. The main focus of the communications team over the past few months has been on getting the news out about ALDAcon. With the Early Bird deadline behind us, the new chair will be free to focus on other things until the next ALDAcon season kicks off in early 2023.
It has been my pleasure to serve as communications chair these past three years, and I look forward to a continued relationship with ALDA going forward. Hope to see a bunch of you in October. I’ve already booked my room and paid the fee. Even though I am no longer working on ALDA communications, any feedback is always welcome.
