Dear JewishGen Community,
I am pleased to announce that long-time JewishGen volunteer, Sandy Aaronson, has assumed the position of Director of Member Support.
Initially recruited by Phyllis Kramer, z’l, Sandy has, for many years, been one the primary people, along with Iris Folkson, overseeing the JewishGen HelpDesk, answering and directing numerous queries and requests for assistance on a daily basis. She has a tremendous amount of technical knowledge of JewishGen’s systems and a good understanding of when issues can be resolved or warrant escalation.
In her expanded role, Sandy will now join the Senior Leadership Team, providing an important voice on how new initiatives will be rolled out from a Member Support perspective. She will also oversee the transition to a new and more simplified software solution that will improve the efficiency of response time, along with a number of other strategic initiatives designed to enhance the experience of our members.
In addition to Member Support, Sandy is also involved with our Ukraine Research Division, serving as the town leader for the town of Verbovets, Ukraine, and creating a Kehilanks page.
Sandy has been a Texas Licensed Real Estate Broker for more than 25 years in El Paso, Texas. She is the Vice-President of the El Paso High School Alumni Association. EPHS is included on the National Register of Historic Places.
I thank Sandy for her for her many years of service in support of JewishGen’s important work, ask that everyone join me in thanking Sandy for accepting this expanded responsibility.
