Views Editorial Team Announces Changes

Joel Reish,

Kay Corry Aubrey

Robin Wedewer

QRCA VIEWS is pleased to announce some very positive personnel changes within the VIEWS team. Both Robin Wedewer and Kay Corry Aubrey will be assuming new roles for VIEWS after publication of the Winter issue. Robin will leave her co-editor position with Susan Fader of Book Reviews to replace Kay as the Tech Talk/Online Qual Feature Editor. And Kay will transition to the newly created role of Digital Editor.

This is great news all around. While Susan will capably continue to manage Book Reviews on her own, Robin will tackle a larger responsibility in a solo Feature Editor role, and Kay will branch out into new realms as she launches the new Digital Editor position.

The new Digital Editor role will focus on maximizing the reach and visibility of VIEWS through social media, search engine optimization (SEO), and other digital means of exposure and promotion. While VIEWS is addressing much of this now in various ways, no one previously has held a role focused on maximizing a coordinated, integrated approach to these ever-growing needs. This will likely prove to be a tremendous benefit to both VIEWS and the whole QRCA organization.

Congrats all around!
