After twelve years of service, Kevin Shalla is stepping down as leader of the Administrative Systems Management constituent group.  I'd like to thank him for his excellent work, both in managing the email list and in coordinating and leading the discussions at the annual conference.

I am taking over leadership of the group, and will be doing my best to keep conversations flowing over email, as well as lead a good discussion in Denver. You will likely hear from me soon with a request for topics.

For those of you who don't know me, I currently oversee enterprise services at Massachusetts College of Art & Design, including both infrastructure and enterprise applications.  I held a similar role at the Boston Architectural College, where I worked first as a librarian and then as manager of administrative systems.  Before coming to MassArt, I worked in the student systems area at MIT, supporting a range of their legacy and home-grown applications.

I'm looking forward to working with all of you in this new role. Thanks again to Kevin for giving me big shoes to fill.
