Dear Members and Friends,

Dr. Joey Mead, UMass Lowell

One of the most important roles a member can have is to serve on the NextFlex Governing Council.

New representatives are elected from the member tiers and rotate in as opportunities arise. I’m pleased to announce that Dr. Joey Mead, Interim Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Distinguished University Professor at UMass Lowell, has been elected to the NextFlex Governing Council to represent Tier 1 Academic Members. We’re delighted to have her join the other member representatives of the Governing Council and we look forward to working closely with her as we expand our activities in the coming year. Other voting members of the Governing Council, along with myself, are:

I wish to thank these individuals for their support of NextFlex and the energy and enthusiasm with which they offer guidance whenever we call on them. It truly is a collaborative effort.

Keep the good ideas coming.


Malcolm J. Thompson, Ph.D.
Executive Director
