American Humanist Association Announces 2011 Board Election Results

Washington, D.C., October 12, 2010

In accordance with American Humanist Association bylaws, the AHA Election Committee met on October 8, 2010, at the AHA's national office in the Mary and Lloyd Morain Humanist Center to open and tally the ballots cast in the AHA Board of Directors election.  There were seven candidates for six openings on the board. A total of 1,982 ballots were received.

Elected to four-year terms were: Jennifer Kalmanson, Howard Katz, Amanda Knief, Raul Martinez, Susan Sackett, and Jason Torpy.  They will begin serving their terms on January 1, 2011. Continuing to serve on the board are: Lou Altman, Rob Boston, Rebecca Hale, David Niose, Herb Silverman, and Kristin Wintermute.

The Election Committee consisted of the following AHA members in good standing, none of whom are paid employees of the AHA: Mike Reid, Steve Lowe, Tony Hileman and Christopher Arntzen. The AHA thanks these individuals, as well as the members of the Nominations Committee---Mel Lipman, chair, Carl Coon, Amanda Metskas, Sue Reamer, and Warren Wolf---for volunteering their time for these important tasks, and wishes to recognize Nancy Martin, who also stood for election.  

We also thank all members who participated in this election, continuing the AHA's tradition of being the largest democratic humanist organization in the United States.

The next meeting of the board will be in Washington, D.C., on November 13, 2010, at the Carlyle Hotel from 1:00-5:00.Following that meeting the newly constituted board will elect its officers.
