Long-time International Chapter Chair Julia Spink Steps Down

By Ilka Kuhagen,

Julia Spink

Julia Spink, who has led the International Chapter for the past five years, has stepped down. During her term as chair, Julia led the chapter into a new area focusing on our international perspectives and adding new ways of bonding and communication over the “big ponds” around the globe. Thank you, Julia!

Ilka Kuhagen, who had stepped in as co-chair last year, will now chair the International Chapter. We have already planned this year’s program and there are some exciting new sessions ahead, so please join the International Chapter of QRCA!

A special thank you to Sarah Davies, Pat Sabena and Susan Sweet for their work in curating an amazing line-up of presentations, and to Rebecca Bryant for her work in creating an interactive Vienna Café experience for attendees.

Kudos to the Marketing Committee for all of their work on marketing the Worldwide Conference, led by Lynn Greenberg.
