Executive Board Bids Farewell

The Biophysical Society Executive Board met for the last time on Friday, February 1, 2013, in Philadelphia. Last year, the Society membership approved the elimination of the Executive Board and named the Society Council the sole governing body. While this will require additional work and time commitment from members of Council, it will also allow its members to become more engaged and better equipped to address the needs of the Society into the future.

At its first meeting, held on February 5, 2013, Council elected the Nominating Committee charged with preparing the slate of candidates for 2015. Elected to the Committee were two members from Council, Samantha Harris, University of California, Davis, and Gail Robertson, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Also elected were two non-Council members, Wah Chiu, Baylor College of Medicine, and Vasanthi Jayaraman, University of Texas Health Science Center. In addition to the four elected members, past President Jane Richardson and past Nominating Committee Chair David Piston will serve on the Committee. Gail Robertson was elected Committee Chair.
