Steve will be joining Directors Liz Bacon, Nasir Barday, Bill DeRouchey,
Janna DeVylder, Kevin Silver, Jon Kolko, Amyris Fernandez and Jeremy Yuille.

The number of Directors on the Board as of 2009 will be our full complement
of 9 individuals. IxDA Directors serve for staggered, 2-year terms with a
two-term limit. IxDA is a non-profit organization and is required to have a
Board of Directors, but the Board is just one component of the success of
IxDA. It is through the conference, initiatives, local groups and individual
involvement that the IxDA network thrives. Our organizational structure is
based on two simple ideas: local grassroots involvement and global
stewardship through the Board. We encourage all our members to organize at
the local level. We encourage all our members to contribute your thoughts to
the advancement of our discipline.

Again, please join us in extending a warm welcome to Steve!

Thanks,
Janna DeVylder
President, IxDA

In theory, theory and practice are the same.
In practice, they are not.
