ASECS New Treasurer Announcement

The ASECS Executive Board has asked Joseph Bartolomeo, Professor of English and Associate Dean of Operations and Planning at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, to become our Society’s Treasurer for a four-year term beginning 1 July 2020. I am pleased to announce that Joe has accepted our invitation. He is a seasoned administrator and long-standing member of our Society. The other members of the Board and I look forward to his wise counsel and astute financial management skills as we continue to strengthen the Society’s fiscal foundations.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing Treasurer, Professor Jill Bradbury of Gallaudet University, for her outstanding service over the past two and a half years. Jill has devoted many hours to clarifying our endowment structure and evaluating our investment portfolio; the Society owes her a great debt.

I would also like to thank the other members of the Treasurer Search Committee who helped to bring this search to a successful conclusion: Lisa Berglund, our Executive Director, Jill Bradbury, and William Warner, our First Vice President.
