    Everyone,

    It's been a couple months since we made the original hiring announcement. At the time of the application deadline, we didn't have anyone that was able to take on the position, and after discussing it with the other Executives and Officers, it was decided that I would continue to do the Social Marketing Manager position in addition to the Director of Marketing position, while looking for a viable candidate to take on the role.

    However, before I made that announcement, someone came to my attention, and I wanted to see if that person was at all interested in the role. Turns out, they were pretty much a perfect fit! They have five years of experience as a Marketing Director at a local company, and while he's only been at the Tower for less than two months, his real-world experience far than made up for his Tower experience. Generally, we do not make someone that has been at the Tower for such a short amount of time an administrator, let alone an administrator that has contact with thousands of non-members, but his excitement not just for the position itself, but for the Tower, tied with his real-life experience, has left us with no concerns in his capabilities to represent the Tower.

    Please join me in welcoming @Bruce al'Kay as the new Social Marketing Manager!
