The National Center on Accessible Educational Materials (AEM Center) has selected Maine’s own, Cynthia Curry as the new co-director. In their announcement that noted that Cynthia, their formerly Director of Technical Assistance, would be joining fellow-Mainer, Skip Stahl as the other co-director.
Joy Zabala, who has been serving in this capacity since the AEM Center started (as the National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials) in 2008, has reduced her time and remains closely connected to the AEM Center while providing her incomparable expertise to additional CAST projects.
In the recent AEM Center newsletter, Cynthia notes, “I’m deeply grateful to Joy for everything she has taught me over many years, but especially the past several months. While no one could replace her, it’s a privilege to succeed Joy in this position. And, not to worry, she’s continuing to be a high profile AEM force! You’ll see her in upcoming AEM Center conference presentations and webinars, and she remains ‘a fingertip away!'”
