Steven Marzuola, Assistant Administrator of the Division, has resigned from that position. He will be staying on as a member of the Leadership Council.
Steven says: I have been honored to serve as the first Assistant Administrator of the Division since it was re-established in 2010. Membership has grown to over 1500 and the Division is very active. Last December I was elected President of the Houston Interpreters and Translators Association, and the duties of that office are taking a lot more of my time than I anticipated. As a result, I have decided to resign from my position in the Division, to take effect at the next ATA Conference in San Diego or when we find a replacement, whichever is sooner.
We are very grateful for all that Steven has done and continues to do for the division. We understand his decision. The process for replacing Steven, according to the Governing Policy for Divisions, is for the Administrator to appoint a member of the Leadership Council to complete Steven’s term. Matthew Schlecht has been appointed. His full bio can be found at https://wordalchemytranslation.com/Matthew_F_Schlecht_Bio.pdf.
We’d like to thank Matthew for being willing to serve.
