The new President-Elect is Byron Good (Harvard), who will take on the position of President in 2013. Bambi Chapin (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) and Jason Throop (University of California, Los Angeles) will serve as elected board members from 2012-2016. Congratulations to all.
Also, the amendment to the by-laws that changes the student representative to the board from an elected to an appointed position has passed.
