Hello and happy (late!) New Year's, LOPSA members! As we welcome the new year, the board would like to wish all of you the best of times in 2020 and to let you know a little of what the LOPSA board has been up to.
With the new year the board is welcoming two new members, Andy Brown and Aaron Haun! They are excited to get started and to work on helping LOPSA be the best it can be. They are joining existing board members Scott Suehle, Brian Globerman, Branson Matheson, Drew Adams, Daniel Hodges, and Andree Jacobson.
Andy is a Master's student at Tennessee Tech University and has worked as a security analyst working with IDS systems and Splunk. He is the president of his school's cyber security student club, where he competes in various competitions and mentors younger students.
Aaron is a systems engineer focusing on dev ops practices. He is well versed in networking, system administration, and development. He has a wealth of knowledge on many non-technology topics too!
Here on the board, our biggest New Year's resolution is to make LOPSA work for you, the membership. We are committed to refreshing LOPSA and recommitting to our mission of improving the field of system administration. If you have suggestions or comments on what you would like to see from the organization, please leave us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org! We look forward to hearing from you and working with you in 2020!
