ODTUG Names New Executive Director
WILMINGTON, NC – ODTUG, a global not-for-profit organization providing education and support for more than 25,000 Oracle technologists worldwide, has named Veronica Snow as its new Executive Director.
Snow has been a valued member of Your Conference Connection (YCC), ODTUG’s Wilmington-based management company, for more than 10 years. Initially hired to serve as registration and membership manager for all major clients, she was responsible for daily monitoring and follow-up with participants and members. After approximately three years, Snow began to serve as project manager for conferences of various associations, technology user groups, and higher education institutions. Her strengths include working with volunteers and boards, conference management, editing, and overall brainstorming and implementation of ambitious projects under tight time constraints.
“We are happy to welcome Veronica to the ODTUG team,” ODTUG President Monty Latiolais said. “From a continuity perspective, the choice was obvious. The organization is in great shape, and we are confident that the addition of Veronica will keep us on that path.”
“I am excited to become an active member of the ODTUG community, which is legendary for its passion and dedication to education and camaraderie,” Snow said. “I also look forward to working with the Board of Directors and the ODTUG team to continue the tradition of success.”
Snow replaces outgoing ODTUG Executive Director Crystal Walton, who has served in the position since 2012.
