Field and LaJoie occupy the new appointed director-at-large positions
on board of directors. The two new seats increase the number of board
members to 19. (SCTE’s membership elects the individuals who fill the
board’s other 17 seats, which consist of 12 regional directors, four
directors-at-large, and one director-at-large Canada).
The SCTE Board’s Executive Committee—currently comprising Tom Gorman,

As with the board’s four Director-At-Large positions, Field and LaJoie
represent the entire SCTE membership.
