2019-2020 Standing Committees/Committee Members

A note from the Executive Committee:

As previously announced, the ASFNR 2020 annual meeting has been postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. Typically, the change in ASFNR leadership roles occurs at the business meeting during the annual meeting. The ASFNR leadership roles are structured to allow the ASFNR President to manage organizational administrative items, and the President-elect to devote time to organizing the annual meeting.

 

Due to postponement of the annual meeting, the ASFNR Executive Committee (excluding current President Max Wintermark and President-elect Greg Zaharchuk) deliberated on the best course of action to continue to link the leadership positions with these organizational tasks, and voted to request additional 1 year terms for Max Wintermark as President, and Greg Zaharchuk as President-elect. Both Drs. Wintermark and Zaharchuk have graciously agreed to take on the additional responsibilities to allow for continued smooth operation of the organization.

 

We express sincere gratitude to both Drs. Wintermark and Zaharchuk for their exemplary leadership and devotion to ensuring continued success of the ASFNR.
