As SWS Co-Presidents-Elect, we want to acknowledge the hard work and leadership of those who are ending their terms and welcome those who are beginning their terms at our 2023 SWS Winter Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.
First, we want to say a special thanks to Mignon Moore who will be ending her three-year term as President Elect, President, and Past President. Mignon has been an amazing leader for SWS. During the difficult year of 2021, she organized an engaged meeting to honor SWS’s fifty-year anniversary. We also want to thank Mary Virnoche who has been a committed Vice President and Co-Chair of the Committee on Committees. She has worked especially hard to support SWS’s commitment to supporting diversity and inclusion. Finally, we want to thank Kristy Y. Shih for her hard work as Treasurer-Elect, Treasurer, and Past-Treasurer. The finances of SWS have been in good hands with her, and Kristy goes out of her way to help and mentor others.
We welcome President-Elect S. Crawley, Vice President Veronica Montes, Treasurer-Elect Tracy Ore, and Student Representative-Elect Pedrom Nasiri. We also want to thank Alexis Grant-Panting for her willingness to continue to serve a third year as Student Representative. We are grateful for your service and look forward to working with you in the coming year!
We will celebrate all our SWS leaders during the 2023 SWS Winter Meeting. We recognize that these positions in SWS require large time commitments and dedication to meeting SWS’ goals. We thank all of you for your continued support of SWS!
