USITT Promotes Carrigan
USITT recently promoted Carol Carrigan to the newly created position Administrative & Finance Manager. This change of position title and job description was announced by USITT President Sylvia Hillyard Pannell. "The promotion is in support of our goal of achieving an even greater level of efficiency in serving our members," Ms. Pannell said.
Ms. Carrigan, who holds a degree from the University of South Carolina in accounting had past experience in non-profit administrative and finance management. She joined the ranks of USITT in 1998 as Finance Manager.
In 2004 she was named Office Coordinator. With this newly structured appointment, she continues in the role of USITT Finance Manager with the added responsibilities of office administration and leadership within the USITT National Office structure.
Owing to Ms. Carrigan's demonstrated successful administrative and leadership style, in March 2007 she received this recent promotion. The Executive Committee, acting on behalf of the Board of Directors, made the appointment. While many of her previous responsibilities as finance manager continue, Stephanie Cuny has been hired as bookkeeper to relieve Ms. Carrigan of many of the accounting duties that she previously performed. Nevertheless, Ms. Carrigan will continue to provide day-to-day oversight, monthly financial reporting, budget and audit preparation, and supervise financial management of special projects.
"The position of Administrative & Finance Management carries with it many additional responsibilities and we are very pleased that Carol has agreed to assume the new USITT staff position. We look forward to a bright future for the Institute with Ms. Carrigan in this newly created leadership role," said Ms. Pannell.
The duties of the USITT Administrative & Finance Manager include working in conjunction with and as an instrument of the Executive Committee of the Institute.
This position will ensure effective and efficient operation of the USITT office, participate in long term planning and strategies of the organization, maintain consistent methodologies and reporting mechanisms of the office operations, and sustain relations with the officers, and leadership of the organization.
