Guild members elected Dan Roesser of Marketing to a seat on the Executive Board at Monday’s membership meeting.
Dan replaces Renee Bernard, who resigned due to health concerns in her family. The Guild expressed graditude to Renee for her service. We know she will remain a committed member and will continue to be a positive voice for the union in the workplace.
Dan, 29, joined the Times Union in 2006 as an advertising artist. He now works as a marketing media specialist. He brings a welcome injection of youth onto the Executive Board at a time when the Guild’s International has made attracting the “Next Generation” of union leaders a top priority.
Dan will finish the one year remaining in Renee Bernard’s term. All the Executive Board positions, which carry two-year terms, will be up for re-election in fall 2009.
