Farewell to Outgoing Board members: Jen Heard (NVIT) and Tessa Quewezance (NVIT)
The Board of Directors would like to thank Jen Heard and Tessa Quewezance for their service and dedicated contributions.
Over the past several years, Jen has contributed to CEUG at many conferences and in particular, she championed the track chairs for CEUG 2019 and ensured sessions ran smoothly. She has also been key in developing CEUG's social media presence in 2020 and 2021. As new opportunities are in her immediate horizon, she will be missed on the Board of Directors but will stay connected to the CEUG community.
Tessa, prior to joining the board, was a valuable contributor during the 2019 conference in providing assistance with our CEUG night out events and logistics teams as part of the planning committee.
CEUG is currently evaluating alternatives with respect to appointing new directors to fill the current vacancies. If interested or If you want to learn more, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
