Former NASW executive director Diane McGurgan is retiring as CASW administrator this week after 40 years of combined service to science writing.

The heart and soul of NASW from 1978 to her retirement in 2009 and the inspiration for our annual Diane McGurgan Service Award, Diane remained active with the Council for the Advance of Science Writing. In April, the CASW board honored Diane's 31 years of service to the organization.

NASW member Sylvia Kantor will become CASW's administrator and communications manager, effective June 1. Diane will remain in a consulting role through October 2018 as CASW moves its headquarters from West Virginia to Seattle. Join us at ScienceWriters2018 in Washington, D.C. Oct. 12-16 to wish Diane well and swap a story or two. Can't make it to ScienceWriters2018? Diane can be reached at diane@casw.org. Thank you for everything, Diane!
