DuraSpace Membership Newsletter
March 21


This month I am very pleased to welcome new DuraSpace Board members Kaithlin Thaney and Wolfram Horstmann (info here from their bios).

We were gratified to receive more than 100 applications for the DuraSpace Business Development Manager position. Interviews are underway for the person who will cultivate and deepen relationships and partnerships to elevate our organization’s profile and to expand the services it offers. I hope to introduce the new Business Development Manager at the DuraSpace Summit next month.

The 2017 Membership Campaign kicks off in April (more here Val).

Results from the Community survey on consulting services here to come.

Warm regards,

Debra Hanken Kurtz
