The new board will take office starting October 26 when they meet together in Raleigh, N.C., at the kickoff of ScienceWriters2012. All seven incumbents, denoted by a *, were re-elected, and we welcome four new board members.
We offer a heartfelt thank you to our four "retiring" board members who did not run for re-election: Terry Devitt, Dan Ferber, Robin Lloyd, and Adam Rogers. Each will continue to be involved with other NASW and science writing activities, and we are grateful for their many combined years of service. A special thank you to outgoing President Nancy Shute who has served NASW in a series of capacities since her election to the board more than a decade ago. She has kept us humming along and imparted energy and enthusiasm throughout her years of service.
Finally, thanks to the Nominating Committee, which put together an incredible slate of candidates this spring, making choices in the voting box difficult indeed: Nancy Shute, President and Chair, Karl Bates, Mariette DiChristina, Lee Hotz, Maryn McKenna, and Carl Zimmer.
