Election Results for Director-at-Large and By-Laws

The elec­tron­ic elec­tion for six Direc­tor-at-Large posi­tions and for the mod­i­fi­ca­tions of by-laws pre­vi­ous­ly approved by the NACS Board is now com­plete.

I am pleased to announce that

  • Jing­guang Chen (Colum­bia Uni­ver­si­ty)
  • Robert J. Davis (Uni­ver­si­ty of Vir­ginia)
  • Maria Fly­tzani-Stephanopou­los (Tufts Uni­ver­si­ty)
  • Bruce C. Gates (Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia at Davis)
  • Fabio H. Ribeiro (Pur­due Uni­ver­si­ty
  • Stu­art L. Soled (Exxon­Mo­bil)

were elect­ed to four-year terms as Direc­tors-at-Large from 11 can­di­dates. They will be seat­ed as NACS Board mem­bers at the start of the NAM23 meet­ing on June 2, 2013. Umit Ozkan (The Ohio State Uni­ver­sity), as the can­di­date with the next high­er vot­er count, will be serv­ing as Alter­nate Direc­tor-at-Large. This is not a Board posi­tion, but the Alter­nate would suc­ceed a DAL in case any of the elect­ed DAL is unable to serve.

The pro­posed mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the by-laws were approved by a vote of 338 to 7.

Votes were record­ed from 590 of 1954 mem­bers of the North Amer­i­can Catal­y­sis Soci­ety.

The elec­tron­ic bal­lots were col­lect­ed, record­ed, and cer­ti­fied by Cre­ative Scan­ning Solu­tions, Inc. an inde­pen­dent orga­ni­za­tion con­tract­ed by the North Amer­i­can Catal­y­sis Soci­ety for this pur­pose.
