With the scheduled retirement of longtime Administrative Director (and longer-time active Georgist) Bob Jene, the HGS Board last night (May 20) accepted the joint proposal from Sue Walton and Edward Miller to staff the School. Edward will take the title of “Administrative Director,” serve as on-site staff at our office/classroom, focusing on publicity, events, classes, esthetic and culinary upgrades, as well as computer support. Sue, as “Operations Manager,” will handle financial and operational records, reporting requirements, and related matters.
Sue is a longtime activist in Georgist work, managing the annual CGO conference and working with Common Ground USA. Edward, a computer programmer by trade, is a Georgist voice in social media, technical lead in everything electronic, and recently began as an HGS instructor.
Bob Jene intends to remain active with the School as an instructor, presenter, and commentator.
Sue and Edward plan to phase into their new roles during June, with Bob’s retirement at the end of that month.
