New staff. New office. New volunteers.

In celebration of MESA’s 15th program season, we figured we may as well make a few changes, beginning with welcoming Aaron Michels as our Program Assistant and Operations Coordinator.

Aaron’s very first day on the job entailed the fine art of schlepping file cabinets and Peruvian trinkets from our cramped office space in west Berkeley to our new digs right across the street from UC Berkeley campus. As soon as we got settled in at 2362 Bancroft Way, Tracie and Bob joined as MESA’s newest volunteers. Both have since been immersed with developing online resources for and maintaining close contact with the new steward group.
