The new ExCom is working on a list of priorities for this next year. If there are things you would like to see APECS do, not do, or improve on - please let me know by October 15th as we will be setting forth our plan for 2008-2009 on that day. We will keep you informed on our current thoughts and ideas for this next year.

In addition, the following people have been approved to serve on the APECS Council for 2008-2009. It is great to see people returning for another year of service and a number of new APECS members have stepped up to this important leadership role for our organization. The Council is open, which means we are always ready to accept new members. You can learn more about these outstanding researchers on the council webpage.
