Election Results

Chairswe have two!

John Pastor –  website

Brad Taylor – website

Vice Chair

Christian DiVittorio – website


Kirsten Hill – website

As the former chair, I will stay on the governing board for two years to help with the transition. And Nash Turley has agreed to stay on as over achieving member and now postdoc-at-large.

Brad and John are excited to share the Chair position after a dead-even tie. This is a win-win situation because next year will be active, as we gear-up for the centennial meeting. All the new officers are excited to move the Natural History Section forward and extend the traditional boundaries. Hooray!


Natural History Booth – we will be there – come visit! Because we need someone to be present at all times, we will need some volunteers help out! Please email me if you have an hour or two that you would be willing to help.

Silent book auction – support the student awards by biding on some great books.

Natural History Section Mixer – come meet your fellow members and new officers. Get involved in the activities for next year.

Student Awards – We have eight candidates and a GREAT group of volunteer judges. I will advertise (the week before) each applicants presentation at our booth, on our website, Facebook, and twitter (the day of). SUPPORT our students, spread the word, attend their presentations and learn some Natural History.

Field trip – Sudeep Chandra (current vice chair) is organizing a field trip to LAKE TAHOE Sunday, August 10. You can register for the field trip when you register for the meeting.
