Dear NPA Board of Directors and Fellow Professionals,
Thank you for an opportunity to express my interests. I want to maintain my connection with the industry; therefore, this is an opportunity for me to transfer my skills in running a non-profit volunteer organization. My experiences in serving other boards includes:
- Rochester Institute of Technology’s Academic Senate (AS) and NTID Faculty Council:
I am serving a three-year term as an Academic Senate Representative that represents 2000+ faculty and staff, and 15,000+ students at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Rochester, New York. Our mission is to address challenges such as planning for the future of RIT, participate a climate focus group, improving student accessibility, and serving the Blue Ribbon Taskforce in streamlining department functions due to budget cuts.
- Applied Computer Technology Curriculum Advisory Group (CAG):
The feedback from IT business leaders are integrated in a decision making process to develop a new course and modify existing courses. I am serving as the lead network developer for the ACT Network Technology curriculum. Under my leadership, I have developed a new course called Introduction to Network Security and Applications. I developed a curriculum and led a team effort that address challenges in preparing students to enter workforce as a system administrator, network technician, or technical support / helpdesk specialist occupations in mind.
My mission for NPA, fellow professionals, and network industry is to bring my creativity, leadership, and experiences on board. I want to work on a team that is willing to steer NPA’s vision, convert vision into action, and produce outcomes (visionàactionàoutcomes). Please put me in the driver’s seat and I will make something happen!
