What's New

Congratulations New Executive Committee Members
Post Date: February 17th, 2015

It is our pleasure to announce the results of our recent election, in which three NSSA Executive Committee positions came to term. Congratulations and welcome to our new NSSA executive members:

Prof. Patrick Woodward (Ohio State) – Vice-President (4 year term)
Dr. Katharine Page (ORNL) – Secretary (4 year term)
Dr. Mike Crawford (DuPont) – Treasurer (2 year term)

We would like to thank our members who put themselves forward for election. Standing for election can be a somewhat thankless task, but the well-being of our society depends critically on our leading members of doing so. We greatly appreciate the efforts and service which these members have offered our society.

We thank our outgoing executive members, Julie Borchers (Vice-President) and Chris Leighton (Secretary) for all their efforts, hard work, and contributions on our behalf.

ACNS a Great Success!
