The VC is pleased to welcome: Ryan Elizabeth Bowe, Lexington, Kentucky; Bill Craft, Gardner, Kansas; Erik Endrulat, Salem, Oregon; Lou Manglass, Winterville, Georgia; Diana Maties, Chicago, Illinois and Reed Tomlinson, Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The Cabinet's mission is to collaborate with URISA's Board of Directors and Committees in creating and promoting programmes and policies of benefit to young professionals.
