With this issue CRA bids a fond farewell to Jean Smith who has been editing CRA publications for 15 years. In addition to handling our various communication channels, Jean handle both the Board and the awards committees. She will be sorely missed as she makes the most of her retirement by traveling to new and exotic locations.
Also departing CRA was Kapil Patnaik, who dealt with our IT needs. Kapil wanted to move into IT management which necessitated a move to a larger organization – TechAmerica. Before he left, Kapil moved CRA into the cloud.
Which lead to CRA hiring Maria Zhuravleva who has a strong background in design while also being able to handle our simpler IT needs.
