RAC SIG Officers Announced

Thanks to everyone that took the time to vote in the recent RAC SIG elections. We had a very successful election with almost 600 members voting for the 6 open positions. The new board will be installed at Oracle Open World on Monday, September 22nd in Moscone South 306 preceding our RAC SIG Expert Panel session at 2:30 pm.

The new RAC SIG Officers are:

  • President – Dan Norris
  • Webseminar Chair – Sreekanth Chintala
  • US Events Chair – Kai Yu
  • International Chair – Murali Vallath
  • Librarian Chair – Ron Kranz
  • Website Chair – Steve Karam

Appointed positions:

  • Oracle Liaison – Erik Peterson
  • Secretary/Hosting – Sergio Del Rio

As Erik Peterson pointed out in his announcement to RAC SIG members, the new board is a mixture of past board members and volunteers as well as some new faces.

Thanks to everyone that voted for me and welcome to the new board members. I’m looking forward to working with the new board and continuing to make the RAC SIG the first stop in the search for RAC knowledge and activities.

The existing board had its last regular monthly meeting today and we thanked Rich Niemiec for his contributions to the board as he leaves the board, but will continue to contribute as a RAC SIG member and occasional webcast presenter (we hope!). We wish Rich good luck in all his future endeavors and look forward to seeing him at some of our future events as well!
