This past week I started my two year tenure on the Board of Directors for the League of Professional System Administrators (LOPSA). My reasons behind running for the board can be found in an earlier post.
I volunteered to become the new Local Chapter Committee Chairman. In this role I will have the opportunity to shape and direct LOPSA’s continuing effort to expand and support local chapters throughout the country. We currently have eight local chapters with a couple more in the up-and-coming phase. I have assembled a great committee with a number of volunteers who are gracious enough to donate time and effort. This will take up most of my time.
I have also been put in charge of planning and coordinating LOPSA-Live, a periodic IRC members forum. During a LOPSA-Live the Board makes announcements and updates the community on LOPSA’s goals and initiatives. This is usually followed with a Q&A. I am working toward having these every other month. This is one of the main ways the Board communicates with LOPSA’s membership.
I believe we have a great set of people on the Board who will work to strengthen LOPSA and further its goals.
