Congratulations to the new GTCA Board!

Below you will find a brief bio on each of the new board members.

President (1 year term 2011-2012) Nominee: Kevin Hade (EE, '10)Bio: I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Environmental Engineering and currently work in Atlanta. I have served as Secretary on the GTCA Board for the past year and have worked closely with the board since its inception, when I was an officer for GT Crew. I am familiar with how the board works and wish to continue to help out the team in any way that I can. Let's go Tech!Treasurer (1 year term 2011-2012)Nominee: Charles Anderson (CS '05)

Bio: I am a 2005 Graduate in Computer Science with a Certificate in IT Management who rowed with GT during the 2001 season. I have been the Treasurer of several clubs and organizations since beginning at Tech. I currently row with the Atlanta Rowing Club. My goal as treasurer would be to help the GTCA grow as an organization and grow the endowment for the GT Crew.

Communications (1 year term 2011-2012) Nominee: Ceda Fusia

Bio: I'm currently in my fifth and (hopefully) final year at Tech as a Computational Media major (for those of you who don't know what that is, I've got concentrations in graphics and information systems in CS and web design/development and film in LCC). Aside from my experience in web development and graphic design, I'm still a big supporter of GT Crew and would love to help out in any way I can.

Events (1 year term 2011-2012) Nominee: Sara Willson-Thacker ('99 STC)

Bio: I graduated in 1999 with a degree in Science, Technology & Culture. Back when I was gt8126c, I held the Public Relations Officer position for the team. Closer to the present day, I was the GTCA Events Chair in our inaugural 2008-2009 year and look forward to seeing how the role has evolved since then. Events like Homecoming and the Spring Picnic are a core part of the value that GTCA brings to its members and I am excited to bring my 12 years of experience as an alumna to this role.

Secretary (1 year term 2011-2012)Nominee: "Slim" Jim Price ('01)

Bio: I joined the GT Crew Team during my freshmen year just after the team suspension (96/97); during my rowing years I held many officer positions. After graduation, I helped coach for about 10 years, becoming highly integrated into another very important aspect of the team leadership. Professionally, I hold many board positions on my HOA, and various state industrial groups within WI, NC, VA, GA, AL. I will bring a very unique experience to the board with my extensive length with the team and my 15 year history with the team’s alumni.

Merchandise (1 year term 2011-2012)Nominee: Kelley (Conway) Williamson

Bio: I graduated from Tech in 1999, having been a part of four amazing years in GT Crew history. I was an officer during that time, including the formative 1996-1997 season, when the team began to take the shape you see today. After graduation, I held several positions in GT Alumni clubs, gaining a working understanding of how the Alumni Association interacts with its affiliate groups. I've been involved in GTCA since its early days, and I look forward to helping our awesome group grow even larger and more successful (and well outfitted!).
