A message from Chris Mitchell

From the Secretariat:

Today at Money 20/20 in Las Vegas, DATA announced a new partnership with Washington D.C. based Prime Policy, and the appointment of Chris Mitchell as our new Executive Director, effective November 1st with the start of our new membership year.

As DATA welcomes Chris, we encourage you to reach out directly to say hi, and to ask any questions or send any comments on the work we are doing. The ongoing education, standards and policy work of DATA continues as we enter our 2nd year, and we look forward to another year of expansive growth in 2015, with Chris now at the helm.

From Chris:
Earlier today, DATA’s Board of Directors announced my appointment to the organization as its first Executive Director. I am honored and enthusiastic to be working with the Board to lead the organization at such an important time for the digital asset community.
As Executive Director, I will be focused chiefly on helping the organization achieve its founding mission: strengthening the ubiquity and usability of digital assets through educational initiatives and consensus-based best practices and standards.
I look forward to meeting many of you, if not in the near future, then at DATA’s annual conference this April.  In the interim, please don’t hesitate to contact me whenever I can be of help to you.
Best regards,
Chris Mitchell
