On behalf of the nominating committee, I would like to thank everybody who nominated candidates for the upcoming elections, as well as the candidates and those that considered running, but unfortunately were unable to. The ballot will come out shortly and I encourage you to read the candidate statements and biographies carefully. You will notice that we have an excellent slate of candidates who are highly qualified for the positions they are running for. Please make sure to vote and please remind other members of the Forum in your department to vote as well. Active participation in Forum sponsored sessions at meetings as well as strong member participation in the election show that the Forum on Education is an active and vital part of the APS.
Michael Fauerbach is a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Florida Gulf Coast University. He is the Vice Chair of the Forum on Education, and serves as chair of the Nominating Committee.
