ITA Honors Ron Eagle with President Emeritus Title

The board of Information Technology Alliance (ITA) announced it has bestowed the title of President Emeritus to outgoing President Ron Eagle. After fifteen years of being involved in the founding and leadership of the association, Eagle retired from his position of president on August 31, 2012. 

Eagle joins board emeritus members Taylor Macdonald, Mickey Scheffki, and Doug Brady and member emeritus Jeff Zalusky as the key founding members of the organization who have been honored with an emeritus status.
 
George Dufour, chairperson of the ITA board of directors, stated: "The ITA board recognizes all of the contributions Ron has made to the success of this organization, and we look forward to Ron's continued involvement in our fall and spring collaboratives and other ITA events. Our emeritus members not only provide us a link to the ITA's history, but they also play an important part in helping the organization define its future strategies." 
 
Eagle responded to this honor by saying: "I am very happy that the ITA board has asked me to continue to stay involved in ITA meetings and their ongoing plans. I can't imagine not staying in touch with all the great people I have come to know and respect over these past fifteen years. ITA has been a very big part of my life, and this honor allows me to continue to stay active into the future. What a great way to end a working career!"
 
Incoming ITA President Stan Mork also announced that Eagle will be honored at the "ITA Fall Collaborative" event in Scottsdale, Arizona, November 4-6, 2012. He stated, "Our Sunday evening general session will be a tribute to Ron and to his many contributions to our organization. We expect a large turnout for the Sunday festivities and the rest of our conference, where we will also be celebrating the fifteen-year anniversary of the ITA."
