A recent meeting of NCSE's board of directors was the last for Vicki Chandler and Naomi Oreskes, whose terms expired. Both joined the board in 2017.
Chandler, the Dean of Natural Sciences at Minerva Schools at KGI, is a leading plant geneticist; she is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, serving on its governing council from 2007 to 2010, and of the National Science Board.
Oreskes, Professor of the History of Science at Harvard University, is the author (with Erik M. Conway), of the pioneering expose of organized climate change denial, Merchants of Doubt (2010). Her honors include NCSE's Friend of the Planet award.
"NCSE is immensely grateful to both Vicki Chandler and Naomi Oreskes for their invaluable service," commented Ann Reid, NCSE's Executive Director.
