The 2010 SIG Member of the Year is Barrie Hayes, Chair of SIG DL. Barrie continued her excellent service to SIG DL by moving up to the Chair position this year. She brought an enthusiasm for developing and expanding the SIG, as well as a dedication to providing a home for data-oriented practitioners within the Society as a whole, to her work with SIG DL. Barrie has been an exemplary Chair from a governance perspective; she is one of the few to consistently manage SIG business with a keen eye for detail and deadlines. Under Barrie’s leadership the SIG held several Skype calls among the SIG leadership and with interested members, developed an excellent post-conference workshop for the 2010 Annual Meeting, and made a concerted effort to grow the SIG through involving both the official members and those who had joined the Facebook and LinkedIn pages. Congratulations to Barrie Hayes, the 2010 SIG Member of the Year.
