The CUGC Steering Committee is tasked with directing our community. It first convened in early 2015 to plan our launch in May of that year, and it has been helping to manage our operations and growth ever since. Comprised of Citrix end user customers from diverse backgrounds and key staff from the Citrix community team, the Committee end user members volunteer their time to make CUGC the best it can be.
Today we're announcing a new President, new Vice President and two new members. We're pleased to share the news that Lee Winbush from 3M is President and Tobias Kreidl from Northern Arizona University is Vice President. Each has shown dedication to CUGC, our members and our mission. The community will be in excellent hands under their leadership.
As CUGC has grown, so has the Steering Committee. We're thrilled to welcome two new members: John Pagliuca from Yale University and Sarah Vogt from Greenberg Traurig.
We also want to thank Chris Trost. Since CUGC's inception, Chris served as our President. He provided invaluable leadership, organization and good humor. Chris has transitioned to a new professional role and stepped down from the Steering Committee. We extend our gratitude to Chris for everything he has done to help CUGC launch and grow.
