Board names Rees interim MDO
On August 17 the UUP Executive Board selected Robert E. Rees as interim statewide membership development officer (MDO) by a majority vote, effective immediately. Following the vote, the board approved a recommendation from UUP President Phil Smith to appoint Rees. Rees fills the vacancy created by the Aug. 1 resignation of Ed Quinn.
Rees, a statewide Executive Board member and former chapter president at SUNY Alfred, will serve as interim MDO until an election is held at the 2012 Fall Delegate Assembly Oct. 13 to fill the remainder of Quinn’s term, which expires May 31, 2013.
