The following AFS members were elected to office in the balloting that ended December 31:

President: (President-Elect in 2019, as President in 2020-2021, and as Past President in 2022): Norma E. Cantú (Trinity University)

Executive Board (2019-2021): Luisa Del Giudice (Independent, California), Tom Mould (Elon University), Emily Socolov (University of Texas, Austin)

Nominating Committee (2019-2021): Lisa Rathje (Local Learning)

304 members voted in the election, a similar number to those voting in our last Presidential election (312).

We want to extend the gratitude of the entire Executive Board and staff to all of the 2018 candidates, who deserve thanks for their willingness to serve the Society and field, and for their energetic participation in the nomination and election process. The same appreciation is due to the members of the 2018 Nominating Committee—and in particular to departing Committee chair Steve Zeitlin—for their work to assemble this slate of excellent candidates, and to all our 2018 candidates for their willingness to serve the Society and field.

Our thanks also go to departing Executive Board members Barry Bergey, Katherine Borland, Guillermo de los Reyes, and Jim Leary, and to our Past President Kay Turner. We appreciate your service and look forward to continuing to work alongside you for the benefit of our Society. 

Incoming Nominating Committee chair Diane Goldstein, along with Committee members Rachel González-Martin and Lisa Rathje, will be taking up the 2019 nominating process—which will elect three Board members and a member of the Nominating Committee—later this spring.
