Dear SoWH Members, Vendors, Sponsors, and website visitors,
We are thrilled to announce the promotion of Aika Barzhaxynova to Director of Marketing and Business Development and Shanee Hunter to Manager of Education & Technology.
Aika joined the SoWH 3+ years ago and has advanced progressively in the education department as Program Manager followed by Manager of Education & Technology. She has played a key role during past staff transitions and expanding and standardizing the education program of the Section while wearing multiple hats where she handled marketing, communications, events management, volunteer management and other aspects of SoWH operations. Aika’s passion and skills in creative design, marketing and business development have surfaced and flourished during her work in the education realm which made the next step clear for her to pursue marketing and business development full-time.
Shanee joined the SoWH in November of 2016 as Association Administrator during the months leading up to CSM 2017 in San Antonio, Texas. She has proven herself to be a great team player with a positive attitude which was greatly needed as we headed to Texas for the annual meeting and began a new year with 40+ courses ahead of us. Shanee handled many education-related activities from processing registration applications to handling course shipments and communicating with instructors and lab assistants which made her promotion to Manager of Education & Technology the most logical step.
We are excited about Aika’s and Shanee’s new roles. The reasoning behind these changes was to incorporate titles that more accurately reflected the duties and responsibilities and the growth of the responsibilities under the SoWH staff
Please join us in welcoming Aika Barzhaxynova to the Director of Marketing & Business Development position and Shanee Hunter to the Manager of Education & Technology position and congratulating them on their promotions.
