President ASTD Pittsburgh Chapter
Our Fondest Wishes to Our Outgoing VP of Communications—Kim Currykosky
After more than three years on the ASTD Pittsburgh Board of Directors, Kim Currykosky our VP of Communications, has decided to “retire” from her board position. During Kim’s term on the BOD, she is fully responsible for and credited with the creation and monthly writing and editing of our ASTD Pittsburgh Newsletter. In addition, Kim played a significant part in the updating of our ASTD Pittsburgh website to provide more timely information and communication to our members. Kim’s ongoing support of the BOD in the past years has been significant and fully appreciated. Her absence will be felt and she will be missed. Thank you Kim for all you have done to make the ASTD Pittsburgh Chapter what it is today!
