Tribute to Christopher French

I’d like to introduce myself as the new president of AICA-USA and, at the same time, take the occasion to express my appreciation and admiration for Christopher French, AICA’s out-going president.

Christopher has, in the brief period of two years, brought AICA into the 21st century, a period he has more than ably learned to navigate. He has created order in a by nature chaotic operation made up of part-time volunteers, many of whom are computer and social-media illiterate, by systematizing record-keeping as well as overseeing the creation of a first-class website and feeding it regularly with fresh observations about recent publications and events.

He has also patiently supplied me with the basic tools for managing the organization, which, through trial and probably many errors, I hope to master.

I’m very much looking forward to working with you all and will be in touch more frequently in the fall. I thank you for your support.

 

All my best, 

Barbara
