TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- Canadian University Press welcomes three new professional industry representatives to its Board of Directors for a one-year term effective May 1.
This marks the first time CUP has welcomed a team of professionals to its Board of Directors and the first time they've been empowered to act as full voting members of the Board. This landmark decision was made at CUP's Jan. 2014 members' meeting.
Steve Ladurantaye, Wendy McCann and Shelley Robinson were appointed by the CUP Board on April 14 to act as voting directors for 2014-15, subject to approval by members at CUP's national meeting in Jan. 2015. Each brings a specialized skill set to CUP and we're looking forward to tackling future projects with their input.
Ladurantaye has extensive business and media experience and is unique in his understanding of the business of Canadian journalism thanks to years of covering the media beat at the Globe and Mail.
He recently left the Globe for a position at Twitter Canada where he is the head of news partnerships at Twitter. He works closely with senior managers at news outlets across Canada and the world to develop and monetize their online strategies. He brings connections and insider knowledge of the media industry to CUP.
McCann is a senior communications executive and media manager with 25 years of combined experience in leadership, communications, journalism, project management, strategic thinking and marketing. A former senior national journalist, political reporter and managing editor, she has extensive understanding of media operations. McCann brings long-standing personal and professional relationships with top journalists, editors and publishers.
Over the course of her work as a member of the Ontario Newspaper Awards' Board of Directors and director of strategic communications at the Council of Ontario Universities, McCann has considerable experience and contacts among companies and organizations with a history of sponsoring student and/or media events.
Robinson has more than 12 years of experience in community media, including running a community newspaper in Belfast, Northern Ireland, working with community radio stations in Canada and Afghanistan, and running Carleton's "Rwanda Initiative" media development project.
The executive director of the National Campus and Community Radio Association (NCRA), Robinson has strong skills in project management, running a member-driven national association, and grassroots journalism, and she has successfully raised more than $2 million in grants over the course of her career.
Canadian University Press is North America's only student newspaper cooperative and the world's oldest student news service. Established in 1938, CUP provides opportunities and services to student newspapers in every Canadian province and advocates on behalf of student press everywhere.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
