Dear NABS Members,

On behalf of the Election and Place Committee, it is my pleasure to announce Dr. Joseph R. Holomuzki, Associate Professor in the Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at The Ohio State University Mansfield Campus is our new President-Elect. Joe conducts research on how extremes in flow (flooding and drying) affect the organization of stream macroinvertebrate communities. Congratulations Joe, we look forward to your leadership in NABS. I would like to thank both Joe Holomuzki and Amy Ward for agreeing to run for President of NABS this year. Both were excellent candidates and the vote was close.

We have over 900 NABS members registered for the NABS/ASLO meetings in Santa Fe, a record number in recent years! This promises to be a dynamic and exciting meeting with outstanding plenary speakers, and excellent sessions that have combined ASLO and NABS members within each session.

I encourage you to participate in the online discussions of a possible name change for the society and its journal (http://www.benthos.org/). There will be an open Town Hall meeting in Santa Fe at noon on Wednesday; please plan on joining us there for a healthy discussion about the pros and cons of changing our name(s) and adding your potential name to the list. We will also have a table at Santa Fe where people can learn more about the name change discussions, and contribute their ideas. Please stop by!

Looking forward to seeing you all in Santa Fe!


Nancy C. Tuchman, NABS President
