Yes, Virginia, I too have the same problem.

I *do* have personalized company business cards, but they list my old title (Account
Coordinator, a position I held for several years while waiting the the TW position to
be created). I moved to my new position last May.

In the past year, many employees (programmers included, who have just about as much
direct client contact as I have) have been given new sets of business cards to in
order to include e-mail addresses, but they will not give me new cards. I refuse to
distribute the old ones. I do have some contact with clients, especially when they
come on-site for a meeting. It's rather embarassing not to be able to give them a
business card - I have to come up with excuses such as "I'm ran out", or if I'm
off-site, "Sorry, I forgot to bring one."

Pretty pathetic, eh?
