Organization hires 'major addition'

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

LAGO VISTA, Texas - After its first associate executive director didn't work out, NRRTS named Judy Dexter, a familiar name to many of its registrants, to the post June 18.
Most recently, Dexter worked in outreach and customer support for Aspen Seating/Ride Designs, a company that provides seating consulting services. Before that, she spent 31 years working for Qwest Communications.
"She has a level of energy that's pretty extraordinary," said NRRTS Executive Director Simon Margolis. "I think she'll be a major addition to the organization."
Because Dexter is based in Littleton, Colo., NRRTS will move its offices there.
NRRTS resumed its search for an associate executive director to manage the organization day-to-day in early April. Valerie Nehl left NRRTS shortly after the organization named her to the post in February.
"Valerie had great qualifications and references, but when we got into it, the job was different than she had envisioned," said NRRTS President Mike Seidel.
Responsibilities of the position include processing registrant applications, preparing financial documents and organizing teleconferences for board and executive committee members. Administrator Judy Vance, who retires this summer, holds many of those responsibilities now.
Dexter will report to Margolis and the organization's executive committee.
