 President-Elect Candidate - Kathleen Dooley, Midwestern University

Kathleen started with Midwestern University in 1992 after achieving a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Southern Illinois University. As the Director of Media Resources, she is responsible on the Downers Grove, IL and Glendale, AZ campuses for media technology and creative services including: audio visual equipment services, audio visual design, audio visual project management, media technology installations, live event technology services, creative support services. Kathleen also participates in all media related purchases, media equipment planning, and new facility projects for the University.

Kathleen and Midwestern University have been a member of CCUMC since 2007. She currently serves as an Institutional Director on the Board of Directors. She also has served on the Professional Development Committee since 2009, chaired the committee from 2012 - 2014, and has been directly involved with producing all of the committee’s webinars. She was the 2013 Conference Co-Host in Oak Brook, and served as a member of the Conference Program Planning Committees in 2013 and 2014.
STATEMENT OF INTEREST: I was honored to be nominated for the President of the Board of Directors. I have seen the great work that previous board members have done, and it is my hope to continue to contribute towards the organization's success. I have been fortunate to get actively involved with the conferences, interest groups, and Professional Development Committee. The organization is growing and evolving. I have a strong interest in continuing the efforts towards making it a vital resource for professional development opportunities, networking opportunities, and educational opportunities accessible to the CCUMC community.

Treasurer - Don Merritt, University of Central Florida

Don Merritt is the Director of the Office of Instructional Resources (OIR) at the University of Central Florida. OIR maintains a staff of certified Crestron programmers and CTS-certified installers to design, install and support hundreds of integrated multimedia rooms across all of UCF's campuses. In addition, OIR provides end-user support for collaboration and Panopto lecture capture systems for UCF. OIR is also home to UCF's Faculty Multimedia Center, a multimedia production facility dedicated to empowering faculty in the use of digital technologies.

Don holds a PhD in Texts and Technology from UCF where he studies virtual environments, games and accessibility in addition to his OIR responsibilities. Don’s background includes several years in broadcasting radio and television and several years teaching. He has also been involved in a number of international theatre projects that used telepresence to combine actors and audiences across North America in real time, and has contributed to Emmy-nominated productions and internationally-screened documentary work.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST: I am very interested in the CCUMC Treasurer position because I believe strongly in the mission and direction of CCUMC and want to do all I can to help keep it strong. I have many years of direct budgetary experience in my current position at UCF and I feel that is a strength I can leverage for CCUMC. I also believe that my experience with a variety of vendors and institutions will be beneficial to the needs of the Treasurer role. 

On a more personal level, I’m really, really excited about CCUMC. Every year I’ve attended I leave more energized and with fantastic connections to great people at schools all across the country who understand what we do, why we do it, and the challenges we face. I’ve been encouraging the other schools in Florida to start to become involved as well, since many of the conversations we’re having within the state are happening in so many other places. As AV professionals I feel that CCUMC is a strong (and growing stronger!) voice for our needs and concerns, and I very much want to do all I can to help it succeed.

Institutional Director Nominees (Two seats available)

Regina Greenwood, Texas A&M University

Regina Greenwood has been the Associate Director for Instructional Media Services (IMS) since 2010. IMS is under the division of Academic Affairs. In addition to leading the IMS staff, she is responsible for the audio visual purchases, budgeting and acquiring new classrooms. Her staff (composed of 7 full time employees and 60 student workers) provides audio visual technology, installations, maintenance, design, consultation, AMX programming and support for 70% of the Registrar maintained classrooms and 10 Open Access Labs across the College Station campus. Regina has been actively involved in the growth of IMS for over 30 years.

Regina has served on various committees at Texas A&M. As of 2014, she is serving on the Classroom Improvement Committee. This committee is charged with renovating classrooms under the Registrar. Regina and her team also recommend and install the audio visual equipment for these classrooms.

Regina has membership in Infocomm, CCUMC and Educause. She serves on 2 committees (Nominations and Missional Excellence) for the West District area of the United Methodist Church. Regina is a licensed United Methodist Pastor serving the Leona Circuit in Leona and Midway, Texas. Regina is also a local advisor for the Brazos Valley Chapter of Aglow International

STATEMENT OF INTEREST: I was introduced to CCUMC by one of my vendors. I met one of the officers of CCUMC at INFOCOMM and the rest is history. I attended my first conference in 2013 in Wheaton, IL. I knew that I had found my “niche”. Before this conference, I thought INFOCOMM was the only place that my staff and I could attend. I had no idea that there were other departments similar to ours. I gained so much “confidence” in my field from this organization. I have tried to attend a CCUMC conference ever since. After this year’s conference in San Antonio, TX, I am now requiring my installers to attend. The contacts, experiences and information gained have been invaluable to me and my career. I just want to give back. I desire to serve in capacity of an Institutional Director.

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. Before moving to northern New England, Anthony was an Academic Technology Coordinator at Clark University in Massachusetts, and at Minnesota State University – Akita in Japan. He is interested in copyright and fair use and has presented on the topic for the CCUMC, at Dartmouth and at Clark University. Outside of work, he has served on the boards of the Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School District in Spencer, Massachusetts, and the Old Church Theater in Bradford, Vermont. He is active in local theater and in Harmony Night, a community a cappella chorus. 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 served on the Government Regulation and Public Policy Committee from 2012-2015 and co-presented the CCUMC webinar “Copyright Updates for the Digital Age” in February 2014. I also presented at the 2015 and 2016 Conferences, and led the Special Interest Group discussions on Instructional Design issues at each of those conference as well. 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.

He oversees the design, purchase and installation of classroom technology, streaming technologies, and maintains a checkout pool of equipment available to the campus community. Through Whitman College, Jon hosted and coordinated the 2015 Northwest Managers of Educational Technology (NW/MET) conference which is an organization similar to CCUMC but with ties specifically to the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST:  Being nominated as a potential Institutional Director on the Board of Directors is an honor. The previous Board of Directors have laid the foundation for an amazing organization and I look forward to having the opportunity to serve and keep this top-notch consortium moving forward! I have been attending the Annual Conference since 2008 and am continually impressed by the presentations, the schools that host them and the attendees. Being a member of CCUMC is something special, it feels like family and every year we get to have an incredible family reunion. With my background, and passion for higher education I feel like I have a lot to offer CCUMC and look forward to serving in a new capacity. If elected, I hope to work with the Board to find new professional development opportunities for our members as well as growing the general membership.

Darrell Lutey, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Darrell Lutey is the Associate Director of Information Technology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).

STATEMENT OF INTEREST: I would like to continue as an Institutional Director for CCUMC. 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, 2013, 2015, and 2016 conferences. In 2012 UNLV hosted the CCUMC Annual Conference (hope you had a blast). Myself and Sue Parks (former president) were responsible for the planning and organizing of all the conference activities. 

Over this past year I have been a CCUMC Institutional Director, and have also coordinated the Interest Groups. I recently planned and organized CCUMC's first Emerging Technologies Spark Session, which was a webinar format of the interest group session that typically takes place at the Annual Conference. 

I would to continue as an Institutional Director because I feel the need to contribute more to the organization. I will continue 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.
