You've no doubt seen our recent reorganization of the eG Forums non-regional areas by a crack team of volunteers. While that process was wrapping up, we also developed several new staff positions, and we're pleased to announce some of those today.
Chris Amirault ("chrisamirault"), who recently stepped into the position of Director of Operations, eG Forums, will be supported in his eG Forums duties by a team of three eG Forums managers. Two were critical members of the reorganization team: Pamela Reiss ("Pam R") has been named Manager, eG Forums Kitchen, and Janet A. Zimmerman ("JAZ") will serve as Interim Manager, eG Forums Culinary Culture. A third manager, for eG Forums Regional, will be named after the regional forums reorganization slated for later this year.
In addition, as the Society has started to transform both its internal organizational structure and its external structure to better serve its mission and the needs of its members, we've asked volunteers to take stock of their roles moving forward. We're grateful that several of our current managers will continue on as eG Forums hosts: Ron Kaplan ("ronnie_suburban"), Brooks Hamaker ("Mayhaw Man") and Dean McCord ("Varmint," who also serves as General Counsel). We also wish to thank those staff who are moving on to pursue other activities: Samuel Lloyd Kinsey ("slkinsey"), Holly Moore, Jonathan Day (who will continue to serve on the Board of Directors), Steve Klc, Linda LaRose ("fifi") and Lucy Vanel ("bleudauvergne") will join the ranks of our emeritus staff. With deep gratitude for their years of excellent service, we wish them luck and look forward to their continued participation in eG Forums discussions.
Beyond eG Forums, Dave Scantland ("Dave the Cook") will be acting as Director of Operations, eG Features, which encompasses the Daily Gullet, eGullet Culinary Institute and eG Spotlight. In that capacity, Dave will be supported by the current directors of each of these segments -- Margaret McArthur, Janet Zimmerman, and Richard Kilgore -- in redesigning eG Features this spring. Check here for more information soon.
Last but certainly not least, the steadfast Kris Yamaguchi ("torakris") will serve both the eG Forums and eG Features segments in her capacity as Manager, eG Forums Membership.
