All of the 2010 candidates deserve our thanks for their willingness to serve the Society and field, and for their energetic participation in the nomination and election process. The same is due to the members of the 2010 Nominating Committee (Juwen Zhang, chair; Suzi Seriff, Steve Winick, and Amy Skillman) for their work to assemble this year's slate of candidates.
Finally, the entire Executive Board expresses its deep personal appreciation to the departing members of the Board--Past President Elaine Lawless, Tim Evans, Carl Lindahl, and Marsha MacDowell--for their constant leadership and thoughtful stewardship of our Society.
The 2011 nomination process will begin this Spring, and will be led by 2011 Nominating Committee chair Suzi Seriff.
