Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - The Technical Association of the Graphics Arts (TAGA), the only global professional technical association for the graphic arts industries, today announces the results of its recent board election.
With more than 300 individual members worldwide and 15 active student chapters at leading institutions, TAGA serves the CTO, CIO, and R&D management personnel of printers, publishers, and premedia companies, as well as engineers and scientists employed by graphic arts systems and equipment providers, ink manufacturers, and paper manufacturers.
With the industry's best permanent set of technical papers and abstracts, TAGA focuses on graphic arts systems, software, and computer technology developments, as well as the more traditional areas of press, ink, and paper engineering applications. The association also provides guidance and support to its fifteen active student chapters around the world.
Board Elections are held each year to coincide with the organization's Annual Technical Conference, held recently in San Diego, California. As a result, the association is proud to welcome several new officers who assume their duties this month:
- Vice President, Technical Papers: Alexandra Pekarovicova from Western Michigan University
- Vice President, Membership and Publicity: John Sweeney from FineEye Color Solutions
- Vice President, Education: Martin Habekost from Ryerson University
In addition, several new and returning board members have been elected to terms expiring in 2013:
Several prominent industry leaders were appointed to fill vacancies within the Board. Each of the appointees stood in the TAGA election and each was nominated by the board based on receiving the highest number of votes.

"It is with great pleasure that I welcome this outstanding new class of TAGA officers and board members. This group represents a great diversity of roles and views from the industry and academia and will help guide the organization to great success in the upcoming years," said Bjorn Kruse, President, TAGA.
The TAGA board will continue to play an essential role in helping the organization meet its overarching objective of providing a worldwide forum for sharing and disseminating theoretical, functional, and practical information on current and emerging technologies for graphic arts print production and related processes.
