We are happy to report that the Co-op has hired a new Systems Manager! Scott Leslie (see bio below) will start with us on August 19th. We feel Scott has an excellent and complementary skill set to help us move a number of initiatives forward, streamline our processes and build new solutions. In particular, we like Scott for his experience working with distributed clients/members on large-scale initiatives, and for being a recognized expert in distance technologies that connect communities. Please join us in welcoming Scott in late August.
