FISD Newsletter – April 2022

Welcome Our New Team Members!

This month, we welcomed two new team members: Courtney McGuinn and Kirsten Ballard. Courtney is our new Program and Project Director and will be developing our North America events and working group activities. She has an impressive background coming to us from the FIX organization where she managed the global team there for close to 18 years and we are so excited to have her join the team. Kirsten is our new Communications Director and will oversee our website, social, emails and more. Please say hello and help us welcome them to the team!
