Move Complete!

November 1 marked the completion of the move of the System Dynamics Society to its new operational base outside of the University at Albany.  Upon the closing, the staff from the University Office--Roberta Spencer, Robin Langer, LouAnne Lundgren, Joan Yanni, Mike Breslin, Carrie Stickan and Babak Bahaddin--presented to new Executive Director Mark Nelson the markers (seen above) which they used to track their office presence over the years.

The Society expresses its thanks and gratitude to the staff of its long-time “Home Office” for their hard work and service to the Society and its members, particularly during the many transitions that occurred over the past two years. To further recognize this important milestone, and to reward Roberta Spencer for her many contributions to the Society over the past 20 years, the Society granted Roberta a paid sabbatical for the next four months.  The Society discussed such a sabbatical for Roberta more than a year ago, and we are happy to now be able to follow through on that earlier commitment.  We will be looking forward to her return in March, refreshed, recharged, and ready to dig into some of the special projects where she will spend her time for the Society into 2020.

With the closing of the office at the University at Albany, we would again like to remind members that all Society-related communication, correspondence, and projects be channeled through the Executive Director and staff at our new Society Office.
