NCSE is pleased to welcome Astrid Broertjes as its new Director of Operations, responsible for administering human resources, managing the office and the administrative staff, and overseeing finance, accounting, and bookkeeping. Broertjes comes to NCSE from Recycle for Change, a non-profit organization in Richmond, California. She succeeds Rae Holzman, who served as Director of Operations from 2011 to 2022. "NCSE is incredibly grateful to Rae Holzman for more than a decade of her cheerful competence," commented NCSE's executive director Ann Reid. "And we look forward to having Astrid Broertjes's help in keeping NCSE running just as smoothly behind the scenes."
