Contributed by kjm34 on Feb 12, 2019 - 08:26 PM

This past weekend, the SSE Council met in Washington, DC for our semi-annual meeting. We welcomed our new leaders Ruth Shaw (President-Elect), Aneil Agrawal (North American Vice President), Sally Chang (GSAC Chair-Elect), Stacey Smith (Councilor), and Suzanne Edmands (Councilor).


We reported, discussed, and voted on a variety of existing and upcoming initiatives, all outlined below. We heard from each of our committees [1], as well as from our Business Office about our finances and membership statistics, and from our journal publisher Wiley about the healthy progress of our journals Evolution and Evolution Letters in terms of reach, readership, and impact. We hope you’ll take a moment to look through this summary and follow the links to learn more about areas where SSE is having an impact.
