ASA is pleased to announce three new full-time staff. ASA members will have an opportunity to meet these new staff at the Annual Meeting in Atlanta.
Jamie Dalton joined the ASA as the Meeting Services Program Coordinator on April 5. She will be working with the Annual Meeting Program Committee to ensure their vision becomes reality. She brings a wealth of experience to the ASA. She has worked in the member association market for more than eight years; holding positions at the American Dental Association and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, where she coordinated logistics for their annual meetings and regional conferences. She has managed online submissions systems; edited and coordinated the production of conference programs; and developed training materials for volunteer and association staff. Additionally, she is a lifetime Girl Scout, which the executive office hopes means plenty of cookies. She also loves to read, ballroom dance, and cook.
Dan Fowler joined ASA as the Media Relations and Public Affairs Officer on April 5. After graduating from Tufts University in 2003, where he majored in sociology and minored in American politics, Dan worked as a journalist for six years. He has been a reporter for Congressional Quarterly and The Washington Examiner in Washington, DC, "The Pink Sheet" DAILY in Rockville, MD, and The Herald News in Fall River, MA, covering everything from homeland security and local government to higher education and the pharmaceutical industry. More recently, Dan has done media relations for the Internet Security Alliance, a trade group, that focuses on cybersecurity. In his free time, Dan enjoys spending time with friends and family, reading, and playing/watching sports. A native of White Plains, NY, Dan had the misfortune of being raised a New York Mets fan, a plight he wouldn’t wish on anyone.
Olga Mayorova joined the Research and Development Department at the ASA as a Senior Research Associate in December 2009. Olga grew up in Russian Siberia and still misses northern lights in winter and mid-night sun in summer. She began her career as a social worker upon receiving a BA in Russian Studies from Perm State University. Olga earned her MA in sociology from the University of Louisville and her PhD in sociology from the University of Arizona, where she also completed her post-doctoral work at the School of Geography and Development. She brings her expertise in social network analysis and quantitative methods to the ASA research team. Olga has done research on labor markets, interlocking directorates, markets for youth services, internally displaced persons, and co-authored several publications. In her free time, she studies Spanish and works on a website about social network analysis in Russian.
