The board of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has elected Robert Schaeffer as director of Region 6.
He replaces Dan Murphy, who has resigned. SCTE noted that Murphy, per Society bylaws, resigned because he relocated outside of Region 6, which is comprised of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. SCTE said Murphy relocated following a promotion from Charter Communications.
Schaeffer, the president/senior technologist of Technology Planners, has served six years on the SCTE board, including holding the posts of treasurer, western vice chair, secretary, and as a member of the executive committee.
