Still looking for a Communications Officer for the TEI-C
You may recall having heard from me several months ago, when I wrote to the list about the TEI-C's need for a Communications Officer.
Luis Meneses, who has been a wonderful webmaster for the past several years, is stepping down, and the Technical Council, Infrastructure Group, and Board have decided to reconfigure the former webmaster position into an opportunity for someone to serve the TEI as Communications Officer. The call is below.
In the meantime, please accept my best wishes for the winter holiday season.
