NY EdTech Meetup Gets New Organizers

PASSING OF THE TORCH: The NY EdTech Meetup, one of the earliest gatherings--and currently the largest with over 4,000 members--will be passing the baton. Previously run by Tom Krieglstein (who also works at Swiftkick), Sharon LaDay (Macmillan New Ventures) and Adam Aronson (Pearson), the New York group will continue its monthly gatherings under the leadership of Kathy Benemann (founder and CEO of Kiyo Consulting) and Michelle Dervan (Pearson's Director of Strategic Partnerships).
