Today marks the last of Shar Steed’s tenure at Computing Research Association (CRA), as she’s leaving us to pursue other opportunities.
Shar has handled the bulk of CRA’s communications responsibilities since 2012, when she joined us as a Communications Specialist from AAAS. In the intervening 10+ years, she rose to Senior Communications Specialist and helped facilitate a complete rebranding of CRA, presided over the revamping of the CRA website, socials, and our newsletters, helped launch several new publications – including the CRA Member Book and the initial version of the CV Database, and just in general made CRA communications work. We will miss all her contributions, and her role as an amazing member of the CRA staff.
She’s leaving CRA to put her talents to use tackling communications issues for another association. We wish her the best of luck and much success in her new position!
