In July we said Farewell to Executive Officer, Margaret Seiche, and welcomed her replacement, Angie Lee.
Margaret served in her role since April 2014 and recently returned to the United States after living in Beijing for nearly ten years. During her two and a half years, ACAMIS membership grew from 60 to 70 members and expanded from two major annual conferences to five while adding a wide range of workshops. The Board expressed their deep appreciation to Margaret for her dedication and initiative during a complex year of transition after the passing of Dr Jim Koerschen, the first Executive Director of ACAMIS.
Ms Angie Lee, a resident of Hong Kong, is already on board as the next Executive Officer. Ms Lee possesses a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from St. John’s University in New York. Before joining ACAMIS, she was the English Editor for an inbound travelling publication and a Reporter for two parenting magazines. She also worked for Yew Chung Education Foundation (YCEF) in Hong Kong for more than four years, where she assisted the Office of the Directorate in various early childhood education projects in Hong Kong and China.
Margaret and Angie worked together in June for a month of overlap and then attended the Chinese Conference along with the Executive Director at the British International School of Shanghai in early July. Tom Ulmet said, “During the overlap in June, we were able to review every major function within ACAMIS and explore ways to make improvements. Naturally, Angie will need time to adjust to our system, but she is off to a good start.”
