SMTE is saddened to mark the passing of past chair, Susan Conkling. Susan was chair from 2014-2016 and was previously Eastern Division representative and also CMS liaison to the SMTE board. Susan was a part of the initial meeting where the first SMTE symposium was conceived.
Many know Susan as a steadfast mentor, a connector of people and an endless font of both knowledge and wisdom. She supported members of, and those entering the profession with passion and energy. Her guidance in SMTE and the profession overall will be greatly missed.
