Listed below are the latest accolades, assignments, and professional updates in the merry old land of SIOP. Send all future IOTAS to me at Allanhc96@aol.com and see your own name in print.


Congratulations to SIOP member Andrew Imada in Carmichael, California who was recently awarded the very first Liberty Mutual Prize in Ergonomics. Andrew also told us that "as I said in accepting the award—behind every man, there's a woman...who's really surprised!"

People on the Move

Jim Sharf, formerly of Aon Consulting and long-time contributor to TIP, has recently changed jobs and is now President of Sharf & Associates: Employment Risk Advisors focusing on selection and appraisal litigation support. He can be reached at his new number (703) 684_4886.

Dianne Brown Maranto informed us that she is resigning from her position with APA to pursue her own consulting practice in I-O and testing applications. She's been with APA's testing office for 9 years, with prior experience at both Edison Electric Institute and HumRRO. She will be on contract with APA to complete the revision of the test standards as project director, but will otherwise be consulting with The Maranto Group. She can now be reached at pmaranto@erols.com, (301) 206_2368.

Fran Karamouzis recently joined Stromberg Consulting, a Fortune 100 HR consulting firm, as a Senior Consultant. Her expertise is centered on strategic consulting emphasizing the linkage between business strategy, operational strategies, human resource practices, and technology initiatives.

Steve Ashworth wrote to let people know that he has left rainy and cloudy Seattle and Microsoft (he actually saw a car on the road there that was covered in mold!) for the sunnier climate of San Diego. He is now the Manager of Personnel Research and Measurement for Sempra Energy in San Diego. Steve can be reached at SAshworth@sempra.com 

Books and Things

Julian Barling of the School of Business at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario wrote to announce the publication of a book he recently edited with Kevin Kelloway. The full citation is Barling, J., & Kelloway, E.K. (Eds.) (1999). Young workers: Varieties of experience. Washington, DC. American Psychological Association. The authors can be reached at barlingj@qsilver.queensu.ca   (Julian Barling) or kkellowa@uoguelph.ca.


There was a mistake inadvertently made in the opening line of last issue's Real World column by Janine Waclawski. It should have read "Welcome to the penultimate year in the 20th century" as several individuals (including this author) have pointed out.
