Introducing the GHC13 Communities Committee

Did you know that the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing has a strong online presence? From Tweeting to blogging to note taking, we've got you covered.  Whether you're an attendee who hasn't figured out how to be in 8 places at once, or someone enjoying the conference from afar, social media can show you what you've missed.

It's the Communities Committee along with our awesome ABI representative Rosario Robinson that make this all happen.  I'd like to introduce you to the committee now!

Charna Parkey, Co-chair
DSP Engineer, PhD Candidate, yogi, martial artist, potter, step mom, volunteer, entrepreneur. Passionate about life, food, friends and family.
Gail Carmichael, Co-chair
Computer scientist, educator, and blogger who is taking leave from a PhD to teach undergrads for a year.  Wrangler of a toddler who thinks bedtime is the worst time.
Kate Tsoukalas
Software testing ninja, blogger and tweeter passionate about promoting, encouraging, and increasing the numbers of women in tech.  Can be found chasing Frisbees and climbing walls in her spare time.
Rosario Robinson, ABI
Her Systers’ Keeper. Developer, open source advocate, and passionate about making positive social global change. Working for the cause and not the applause. Changing the world through technology and community engagement.

We'd love to get to know you, too.  If you're interested in being a Communities volunteer at this year's conference, submit an application by September 7 by clicking the link on the right hand side of the Communities home page.  Be sure to read Kate's summary on why being a volunteer is awesome!
