Running the Numbers – ED17/ED18 Meeting

Another week, another ED Meeting.  Thanks to this week’s hosts Ken Ulric (ED17) and Barbara Hafner (ED18) – and a shout out to Selina Durio (At-Large Director).  The questions were great – and you guys really kept me jumping.  I really appreciate the welcome reception and hope the material was useful.  Here is a link to the PowerPoints: ED17-ED18-Presentation.  If you want the PowerPoint version so you can have the slides and the notes – email me at

About Dave Adkins

I was born and raised in upstate New York and still live there. I went to Syracuse University for a BS in Telecommunications, but did not quite stick to the standard four year plan. I took a year off and went on the road as a drummer in a top-forty band. After college, I continued to play and also did a tour as the Technical Director for an Ice Show (yes – skaters!). Our biggest show was for President Carter at the White House the Christmas before he left office. After getting married, I worked in a number of technology companies designing, consulting, and implementing computer systems and networks. In 1991 I finished an MBA with a concentration in Information Technology. My wife was in law school, so it was the perfect time to go back to school. After this round of graduate school, we had two kids (now 16 and 18 – boy and girl), and I went to work for New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) in 1993. In the new millennium, my wife got elected as a local judge, I finished a PhD in Information Science and moved up the ladder to become the Director of Information Technology for NYSUT. I am an adjunct professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the undergraduate program and have also taught in an evening MBA program. I also have been active lately giving "Cyber Safety" workshops for parents of teens. I enjoy volunteering as a Board member for several local organizations and recently dusted off my drums and started playing again.

    I thought your presentation yesterday was very important for our members to be a part of. I can’t wait to get the power point from you so I can share it with my local organization. Thanks for a wonderful presentation.
