Topics: CAEL News, Adult Learning Success

When CAEL was founded in 1974 as a research project of the Educational Testing Service (ETS), Diana Bamford-Rees was CAEL’s first employee.

When CAEL spun off from the project and became its own organization in 1977, Morris Keeton took on the executive director position and asked Bamford-Rees to join him. Since then, Bamford-Rees has held multiple positions at CAEL, from executive assistant, to managing CAEL’s South Africa initiative. Most recently, Bamford-Rees was an associate vice president at CAEL, responsible for CAEL’s annual conferences, special events and workshops.
