It is that time of year when we start thinking about next year and the board. This year the nominating committee consists of Gloria Arecchi, Shawn Campbell, Gretchen Garceau-Kragh (chair), Margaret Leeds and Robin Raquet.
The nominating committee will recruit KWA members to serve on the board. This year is a little different than in past years in that the committee will be recruiting only one new board member, in addition to nominating a new president. This past year, we had three board members leave the board mid-term. According to the bylaws, board members vote to fill vacancies and the newly-elected board member may serve three years in addition to the partial year they filled. As a result, we have only one board member moving off the board this year.
