Meet Our Volunteers

Let's hear it for those volunteers! It takes a tremendous amount of energy and people to run the Information Architecture Institute. Please see below a list of members who volunteered their time and efforts in 2009 to make IAI's programs possible. So many that we've probably missed a few of you; however, we are still getting updates on projects, so this will not be the last thank you to our outstanding members and volunteers.



Let the credits role:



We'd like to extend a giant-sized thank you to those volunteers who have been running important functions and programs at IAI for many years:



Janette Shew - IAI Translations Team

Samantha Bailey – IAI Job Board

Marianne Sweeny – IAI Job Board Listing Newsletter

Austin Govella- IAI Technology/Web Operations Team



Austin stepped down from his role earlier this year, but has been an instrumental force in all things technology at the IA Institute for many years. His guidance and especially his memory have been invaluable. Thanks, Austin! We've had inquiries from volunteers like Yoni Knoll (hooray!) and others to step in as we migrate to new and better systems, so let us know if you are interested in helping, too.



Janette, Samantha and Marianne are our most stalwart volunteers, overseeing two of the most highly visible offerings at IA Institute. Thanks for your efforts! So, so appreciated.



But we still have many more people to thank. Look below for an amazing list of our volunteers in 2009.



INITIATIVE AND PROGRAM VOLUNTEERS



TRANSLATION OF INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE -

http://iainstitute.org/translations/



Janette Shew led our fantastic translations team efforts this year, working closely with volunteers across many language groups to produce new articles in translations, confirm copyright permissions and develop new language teams to expand our services worldwide. Operations Advisor, Noreen Whysel, continues to work with volunteers on a variety of internationalization projects. We are looking forward to putting our newest volunteers to work developing internationalization processes for the upcoming infrastructure project. (Thanks to Bev Corwin, Roman Stalder and Andrzej Siewiersky for stepping forward). We are blown away by all the work you all have done this year!

EDUCATION IN IA INITIATIVE



The Journal of Information Architecture, a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal, launched its inaugural issue in Spring 2009. The long term goal of the Journal is to serve as a forum for new research and sharing of good ideas and case studies that are useful to the field's researchers, practitioners, students, and all other interested parties. Look for Edition #2 available now and expanded educational offerings from the IA Institute in 2010 as we explore webinars, student groups and more. Contact Andrew Hinton inkblurt@gmail.com for details.

MENTORING - http://iainstitute.org/en/members/mentoring/mentoring_program.php



Thank you to all of our mentors and especially Noreen Whysel for her ongoing contribution to this program. (Noreen may be on operations staff, but much of her support of the mentoring program is unpaid). This year 41 new mentors joined our roster, making a total of over 100 dedicated volunteers.



MENTORING BOOTH VOLUNTEERS

We don't keep a list or watch who is coaching at our drop-in Mentoring booth at the IA Summit but we noticed Amy Silvers and Aaron Louie donating time in Memphis this year. Thanks! Look for more mentoring fun in Phoenix in April.
