State of TRACOM May 2018

It has been busy month in SFMC TRACOM. We had a new Director take over Professional development. We had some Directors that wanted to pass the touch on for their colleges to new Leadership. Senior TRACOM staff have been working hard on revising manuals in SFMC as a whole. Especially some of the Techniques, Tactics, and practices in SFMCA.   I also want to thank everyone’s input on various questions or items not listed, and at times appearing to be confusing in courses and the material. We are looking at clarifying and revising it. I also want to follow up and also Announce a few positions that will be opening up.  These openings are not to diminish or disrespect the directors that had held the reigns I am opening it up for new and fresh ideas and practices to be ran.

Additionally, we are looking at various copyrighted items that we have in the SFMC TRACOM right now. We are working on getting approval from the figures, pictures and other items That we do not have approval for. One such items is the figures and pictures in SFMC MECHA.  We are engaged in finding the previous given copyrighted usage approval from the owner. And Also trying to get updated approval for the current owners of the material. I do not have approval yet. However, SFMCA Mecha Director is working on trying to get it.
