Communications director leaves after ten years.

Patricia L. Poupore, ACA's director of Communications and Publications, left ACA in February after nearly 10 years of service. During her tenure as division director, Poupore developed the Association's publications, research and marketing efforts into major components of ACA's member services. She and her husband left the Washington area to move to Richmond, Va., where she plans to care for a new baby, due in May.

Poupore started working at ACA in 1983 as an associate editor of Corrections Today, and in 1984 she became managing editor. In 1986 the Communications and Publications Division was created and Poupore was named director.

The division employs 19 staff working in five departments--publications, product marketing and research, graphics services and editorial. Under Poupore's direction, the publications inventory grew to more than 200 books, Corrections Today and On the Line underwent numerous improvements in format and content, and several new directories were developed to meet the needs of various sectors of corrections.

At a luncheon in her honor, Poupore said the decision to leave was a difficult one and that she was proud to have been a part of "an association that has so much opportunity to do so much good."

Poupore was presented several farewell gifts, including an ACA clock offered in commemoration of her service to members.

Upon Poupore's departure, Linda Munday, assistant director of marketing and product development, was named acting division director.
