Photo: D.R. Marie-Josée Jehl, who is known personally to a great many Spore readers, is leaving CTA after more than eleven years service. She joined the Centre in 1988 from the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, and worked first as assistant librarian. After the massive task of cataloguing CTA s library, and various information dissemination roles, she became increasingly involved in training workshops with CTA partners a role that was formalised in 1996 with a new post in charge of training, as part of her job as Deputy Head of the Information and Capacity Development Department. By 1999 the training portfolio had grown to17 workshops a year, on subjects ranging from the design of websites to writing annual reports. Her energy level always enabled her to thrive on the intense work, clear results and friendships from such events, which took her to 24 ACP countries. That buzz is what she will miss most from her time at CTA, now that she is going to live and work in Rome. Doubtless she will keep in touch by email she was one of the first CTA staff members to see its value. She now chuckles about the days when the CTA had no email, bringing, almost smuggling, emails into the office each morning from her computer at home. She s a real Cyber Stork the stork, which, like her, flies to Africa each winter, is the symbol of her native Alsace. Very fitting.
