New IAFA Treasurer
On behalf of the IAFA Executive Board, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Sean Nixon has been appointed Treasurer of the IAFA effective 10/1/2021.
Sean replaces long-time Treasurer Dr. William “Bill” Clemente. The Board would like to extend its sincere thanks to Bill for his fifteen years of service in the position. Bill’s presence will be missed by us all, but we wish him happiness in his new role as Nebraska Master Naturalist.
Sean received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he is currently a Research Associate. He is a long-time member of the IAFA whose contribution as On-Site Technical Officer since 2009 has perhaps not been noticed by many precisely because he has done it so well. He has been in charge of purchasing and overseeing all on-site technology for the conference, working with guest speakers and the hotel staff to organize large lectures, trouble shooting technical issues, and supervising a group of volunteers helping with the set up and tear down of conference AV. His efforts have been greatly appreciated, and the Board looks forward to working with him in this new capacity. Welcome, Sean!
Dale Knickerbocker, IAFA President
