To: Whom it May Concern
Date: April 10, 2015
By vote of the AIS Council, meeting in special session on April 9, 2015, we have decided to not renew our contract with Pete Tinsley, who has served AIS since March 28, 2005, the last 8 years of which he has served as Executive Director.
Pete was instrumental in making AIS into the premier global association of IS academics that we are today. During his tenure and through his leadership the association has strengthened its finances, enhanced membership benefits and services, professionalized staffing, advanced communications, and created the student chapter program. He will conclude his service to the association on May 22, 2015. We wish him success in his future endeavors.
I will be appointing a search committee which will be charged with seeking a new Executive
Director. If needed, an interim Executive Director may also be appointed.
Helmut Krcmar, President
Association for Information Systems
