Alan Darling, Linda Manes Goodwin, Frank Scott, and Roy Zucca all returned for another two-year term on the Executive Board. Michael Rodriguez, R.R. Donnelley, and Barbara Hanapole, DDAP Executive Director continue to serve their existing terms on the committee.
Barbara Hanapole, in making the announcement, remarked, "The 2002 Executive Committee is a dynamic blend of DDAP veterans who have faithfully guided the DDAP from its inception and those who bring new blood and ideas. We welcome Tanya Goetz, Scott Tully, and Michael Weinglass to the DDAP Executive Committee. The Association will certainly benefit from their experience and passion for supporting the implementation of accredited standards." Tanya Goetz and Michael Weinglass were recipients of the 2001 Joseph A. Pedone Award.
Tanya Goetz, Quality & Technology Manager, U.S. News & World Reports, has worked on several DDAP initiatives and is chair of this year’s annual conference. She originally proposed the idea of the DDAP Universal PPD at the 1999 DDAP Annual Conference, then co-chaired the task force with Frank Scott. At U.S. News & World Reports she developed an ad program for the magazine’s move to digital production. Working with industry groups such as DDAP, she has promoted the adoption of standardized digital ad specifications for all publications. In 2001 Tanya was named a member of the "Folio 40" for her effort in advocating "filmless" magazine production.
Scott Tully, PDF Workflow Evangelist, Vertis, Inc. has been engaged in the pursuit of streamlining prepress production through education, effective process control, and standardization for 18 years. In 1998 he designed and implemented a "homegrown" automated workflow that produced trapped PDF files for use in computer-to-plate. Since that time, Scott has focused on promoting standardization within Vertis and to the industry. He is a member of the Committee for Graphic Arts Technical Standards (CGATS) Task Force 1 Workgroup 6, the Adobe Solutions Network Advisory Board, and the International Prepress Association’s technical standards committee.
Michael Weinglass, Vice President of Manufacturing and Production, Paisano Publications is a pioneer in the adoption of a computer-to-plate, all digital workflow in the magazine publishing industry. He introduced this technology at Easyriders in 1995 and today all of their publications, comprised of almost 13,000 pages annually are produced in-house. He is a strong advocate for digital workflow and the publisher’s ability to perform prepress in-house and works to educate the industry to be more self-reliant. His video, Ad Deliverance, created to promote 100% digital workflows for advertising, premiered at DDAP’s 10th Anniversary Conference in February. Michael addresses these critical issues on a daily basis as the moderator for the DDAP Digital Ad Forum.
Hanapole also announced the appointment of two new board liaisons. Steve Fullerton, Trade Relations Manager, Kodak Polychrome Graphics will act as Executive Committee liaison to the DDAP Steering Committee, helping to re-launch this group as a key resource for DDAP initiatives. Brad Mintz, Sr. VP, Manager of Graphic Services, McCann-Erickson, will act as DDAP Liaison to the Advertising Industry helping to give ad agencies better representation on the Executive Committee and coordinating efforts between DDAP and advertising industry groups, such as AAAA’s and the Ad Production Club.
The DDAP Association is a key industry association charged with promoting the Digital Distribution of Advertising for Publications.
