I believe in a servant leadership model. My goal as a leader has been to provide opportunities and the needed support for others to serve and enable them to succeed. I also believe in the importance of planning and adapting.
I’ve been a leader in local and international non-profit organizations for several years. A director represents all members of the Society and serves as a communication link.
As Rochester president (2010-2011), I worked to improve communications with the Society Board and office and with our current and former members. We led all chapters of our size or greater in renewals. We successfully implemented a zero budget.
As the Outreach Team Lead of the Community Affairs Committee (2011-present), I’ve built a program and developed a network of seasoned STC leaders that actively engages community leaders to assist them in meeting Society requirements, troubleshoot local issues, share best practices, resolve misunderstandings, and advocate for community needs. This year we advocated successfully for changing the chapter funding model and providing a paid Summit registration to each community.
In the EDUCAUSE Higher Education Information Security Council (2010-2012), I led an international team in developing best practices in security awareness.
