Cate Lyon

What is your volunteer position for 2019 and how would you explain it to someone new to SIGUCCS?
Newcomer/First Timers Coordinator – If you are new to SIGUCCS, I will be there to welcome you, answer any questions you might have and help you navigate the conference.

How many SIGUCCS conferences have you attended?
Memphis was my first – so … 7?

How did you get involved as a volunteer in SIGUCCS?
I introduced a couple CIO’s in a presentation – they didn’t give me any information so I made up their backstories (I believe one became a circus performer dropout and another who wanted to be the first female placekicker in the NFL?) – Melissa was in the session and it was all over from there.


Something that you could always stop and talk to me about …
Pugs and Chickens
