You may notice a new face at ISMB now that Stacy Slagor is leading ISCB's fundraising efforts as Director of Corporate Relations and Development. In 2011, while consulting on a fundraising feasibility project for the Society, Stacy joined us for ISMB/ECCB in Vienna to interview several of our volunteer leaders, sponsors, and exhibitors. This year, we are pleased to introduce her as a full-time member of our professional staff - the first new full-time position for ISCB in over ten years. "You see, we were so convinced by the expertise and skills Stacy demonstrated while working as our consultant that we could not have been more delighted when she accepted our offer to work exclusively for ISCB on a full-time basis," said BJ Morrison McKay, ISCB's Executive Officer.

In her new role Stacy brings over 17 years of experience in successfully building partnerships with universities, non-profits, industry and government. She has previously worked as a corporate relations executive at the University of California, San Diego and at the University of Rochester in New York, and was running her own fundraising consultancy when she came to the attention of ISCB nearly two years ago.

Based in San Diego, California, Stacy has embraced her new responsibilities by helping to structure a Fundraising Committee, reaching out to many of our conference sponsors and exhibitors, and working to develop new giving opportunities for corporations, foundations and individuals. To be most effective she needs to go where our members and supporters go, so you might spot her at other conferences you attend throughout the year, such as ECCB, CSHALS, and the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo, to name a few.

Stacy can be contacted at stacy.slagor@iscb.org and +1-858-630-5339, or on Twitter @StacySlagor.
