Hello PLM World Community Members –

I wanted to update you on the recent election process that has come to an end. Our current Membership Director, Linda Channel, was at the end of her term, and she decided not to run again. I want to thank Linda for her service to our organization. As PLM World continues its transformation, we have redefined the Membership Director position to now be the Community Director, with an increased focus on PLM World membership engagement.

The PLM World election committee received three nominations for this position; however one had to be excluded for not meeting the qualifications. Moreover, due to the timing requirements outlined in the PLM World by-laws, the other two nominations (while qualified) did not meet the deadline. At that point, the PLM World by-laws allow the Board of Directors to appoint an individual to fill an open position. As such, Craig Brown from General Motors was identified and evaluated by the PLM World election committee and affirmed by the PLM World Board of Directors.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce Craig Brown as Community Director for PLM World for the next three years. Welcome aboard, Craig.

With best regards,

Nathan W. Hartman

PLM World Vice Chair and RUG Liaison
