The Austin Forum on Technology & Society is growing, and so is the team that brings it to you! I'm pleased to welcome two new members to our team: Heather Bishop and Jim Stroud.
Heather joins the team as the Managing Director, taking over for Jessica Sager, who is moving to the new role of Communications Coordinator. Heather brings a diverse set of experiences to our team and is excited to get to know our community. She will be committed to ensuring that we execute our events, podcasts, rebooted blog, and new conversations effectively.
Jim also brings fantastic experience to the team, having been one of the early thought leaders in streaming media and a technology analyst. Jim will turn the Austin Forum Update into a premier blog for technology + society topics with interviews, explanatory articles, analyses, and opinions from thought leaders.
These additions will allow Jessica to build the new Austin Forum Conversations series for technology + society topics best addressed with discourse and debate.
Along with John Lockman as the Technology Director and Delanie Majors as the Communications Coordinator, we have the biggest and best Austin Forum team ever.
Together, with your inputs and feedback, we will make sure the Austin Forum programming and experience continue to deliver even higher value and impact--for you, our community, colleagues, and future collaborators.
~Jay Boisseau, Founder & Executive Director
