STATEMENT OF INTEREST: In 1994, I attended my first CCUMC conference at Penn State University. My professional development choices took a different turn for several years, but in 2010, I rejoined CCUMC in Buffalo and realized how much I missed this outstanding organization which fulfills all my professional development needs and interests. The degree of camaraderie, ability to be with like individuals sharing common work experiences cannot be matched in any other instructional technology organization or professional development opportunity. The values of this organization have made me realize that I can make more of a contribution to CCUMC and actively participate in being both part of a rich historical past, but with a focus towards changes in instructional technology and the challenges that await us all.
Treasurer Candidate - John Fick, Life Member (University of Missouri, Retired)
| John retired in September 2012 after many years of providing administrative and fiscal oversight to the Academic Support Center, a technology support unit for the University of Missouri. John provided leadership to a full-time staff of 25 individuals involved in classroom design, installation and support; video production; teleconferencing and streaming; graphic arts and photography; media library and equipment loan; student media and language labs; and related activities. |
STATEMENT OF INTEREST: I am interested in serving another term as Treasurer because CCUMC helped me develop my skills and become more nimble during a time when our profession began to experience rapid and continuing change. I first attended a CCUMC (then CUFC) conference in 1974 and I met colleagues who were eager to share their experiences and work toward solutions to common problems, not because they had to, but because they wanted to. Helping each other and our profession has always been the focus of CCUMC members. Over the years I have served CCUMC in many capacities, including ten years as Treasurer. I am familiar with the responsibilities of the position and believe my skills can benefit CCUMC. In addition to past service as Treasurer, I have also served as Secretary and as Director, and I have had various roles on many committees and task forces. In the past year I have chaired the Finance Committee and been a member of the Executive Office Management Committee, the Constitution & Bylaws Revision Committee, the Program Committee, and the FLEXspace Task Force.
CCUMC plays an important role in our profession and I want to contribute to the organization by helping CCUMC grow even stronger and more responsive to evolving member needs.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST: I am interested in serving on the CCUMC Board of Directors as an Institutional Board Member. The wide variety of knowledge and information that comes from the members of this organization is invaluable. From the message board to the annual conference, the professional development and friendships that are fostered continue year round. I would like the opportunity to participate and share my knowledge and time with such a great organization.

Anthony Helm, Dartmouth College
Anthony Helm is Head of Digital Media and Library Technologies in the Dartmouth College Library, leading the Jones Media Center and the Digital Library Technologies Group (a team of developers and system administrators responsible for the library’s technical infrastructure). Prior to this position, he served as Director of the Arts & Humanities Resource Center at Dartmouth, a facility providing pedagogical and technical support for faculty, and continues to offer pedagogical support as an Executive Team member of the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL).

Anthony holds a B.A. in Television/Radio from Southern Methodist University and an M.A. in Japanese from the University of Texas at Austin.
STATEMENT OF INTEREST: Working in higher education for almost twenty years, I have had many opportunities to participate in a variety of professional conferences. The CCUMC is one of only two where I felt like I was part of a professional family from the first experience. It's about finding a tribe. It goes beyond professional courtesy or mere collegiality, and almost compels you to want to be more active, to give back a little of what you feel you receive from the organization. That's why I'm running for a position on the Board of Directors. I have served on the Government Regulation and Public Policy Committee since 2012 and co-presented the CCUMC webinar “Copyright Updates for the Digital Age” in February 2014 and two sessions at the 2014 Conference. While I am certain that there is still much for me to learn from peers in the organization, I feel that professionally I am at a stage in my career that I can contribute meaningfully to the organization and serve responsibly in a leadership role. I look forward to meeting more members and welcoming new members into the fold as we work to carry out the mission of the CCUMC for years to come.
Darrell Lutey, University of Nevada Las Vegas
Darrell Lutey is the Assistant Director of Information Technology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Darrell oversees the Instructional Technology Services group, which is responsible for related to Classrooms and Computer Labs at the University. Darrell has been an employee at UNLV since 1988 and has worked for many departments including Public Affairs, Human Resources, Sociology, Biology and Hotel.

Darrell currently holds ITIL and CNA certifications and enjoys golf, college basketball and long walks with his wife (Nicole) and Golden Retrievers (Luke and Jazzy).
Statement of Interest: I have been involved with CCUMC since 2006, when I was first given responsibilities for AV support at UNLV. My first CCUMC conference was in Austin, Texas in 2006, and it was a blast. I learned so much, and the people were terrific.
Since then I have attended most of the Annual Conferences and have done presentations at the 2011, 2012, and 2013 conferences. In 2012 UNLV hosted the CCUMC Annual Conference (hope you had a blast). Over this past year I chaired the CCUMC AMSWTF (Association Management System Website Task Force) where the committee made a recommendation about a new Association Content Management System (i.e., Website).
I would like to be a Director because this is such a “great” organization, and I would like to be more involved and give back. I’m hopeful to use my talents, ideas, and dedication to further advance our organization, increase membership, and if possible increase the value of CCUMC to it’s members.
