New Faces at APS Headquarters

Hicks and OtwellTwo new people joined APS staff's College Park, MD, headquarters in October. Barbara Hicks joined the Society as associate publisher replacing Mina Chung, and Suzanne Otwell is the new education programs administrator, replacing long-time APS veteran Tara McLoughlin, who now works for the American Psychiatric Association.

Hicks comes to the APS after 18 years with the Optical Society of America (OSA), initially as director of meetings and conferences, and later as part of OSA's marketing program in its development and business strategies department. The focus of her work with APS is to assist in maintaining the Society's non-member subscriptions.

A graduate of Smith College, Otwell came to the APS from ASPEN, a medical and scientific association. She will be supporting the APS Committee on Education and its work on women's issues through the APS Committee on Status of Women in Physics.
