From the Editor
This year marks my tenth year of involvement in MTA activities. Within months of becoming an Affiliate, I asked if I could help with the newsletter. Mike Kahn, then the editor, agreed to give me an opportunity, and that single email exchange helped me to become a market professional and CMT. I feel that writing for the newsletter was the best study tool available for CMT preparation.
There are twenty committees in the MTA, and I have served on eight of them and been involved with two regional chapters. With all of those activities, the newsletter has taught me the most and allowed me to develop more technical skills than any other. But, those other commitments require time, and I need to find more of that precious commodity to effectively serve the MTA.
To do that, we need a new editor of this newsletter. The job takes about 20 hours a month, on average. Someone with excellent time management skills might be able top schedule an hour a day – that was not my experience as I usually spent all the time over several days at the last minute each month.
If you are interested in helping the MTA by taking over as editor of technically speaking, please send me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will work a smooth transition, so that you will not suffer through a steep learning curve. And, the reality is that Tim Licitra does all the hard work required to create a nice document.
