CIRMS Honors the Past

CIRMS 25th Anniversary – Honoring the Past. Looking to the Future.
A tribute to people who helped the CIRMS grow.


Katy Nardi
CIRMS Executive Secretary
1995 – 2012

Following the formal organization of CIRMS in 1992, the council grew rapidly and it was quickly recognized that CIRMS needed an Executive Secretary to handle the growing administrative workload.  Katy Nardi stepped in to take on the task as the first Executive Secretary with full time responsibilities for all administrative tasks. For nearly two decades Katy was the face for CIRMS to its membership in industry, academia and government agencies.

During her tenure as Executive Secretary, the Council doubled in the number of organizational members, held annual conferences and workshops and produced four national Needs Reports. Katy was always the first to help members, answer questions from the public and make sure that CIRMS reports and newsletters made it to the appropriate contacts.  All of the CIRMS community offer thanks to Katy for her friendship and valuable service to CIRMS.
