Associations are driven by leadership with Xplor being no different. At this years conference the International Board of Directors voted to add three directors with the sole purpose of bringing in “new blood”, particularly “new YOUNG blood”.
I certainly applaud the decision. Our Board is made up of volunteers, who willingly give of their time. There are no perks for being on the Board as we hold (12) meetings a year, (11) via the web and one face to face meeting during our annual conference. This is a group of people that really and truly want to give back.
The Board has remained fairly “consistent” over the last several years so a bit of out of the box thinking is exactly what we needed.
Our young blood comes from the end user, service bureau and vendor community, and consist of Manish Kapoor of FedEx, Roger Chamberlain of Cincinnati Financial and Scott Draeger of HP/Exstream.
I personally want to thank Mark Bonacorso, who was last years Chair for his support and I welcome our new Chair, Paul Abdool and look forward to working with him and the rest of the 2012 Board.
As such, I would like to share our recent press release.
