President: David H. Kaplan, Kent State University. 

Vice President: Amy Lobben, University of Oregon. 

National Councilors: LaToya Eaves, Middle Tennessee State University; Wei Li, Arizona State University. 

Nominating Committee: Natalie Koch, Syracuse University; Kefa M. Otiso, Bowling Green State University; Yolonda Youngs, Idaho State University.

      I particularly would like to thank all of the distinguished candidates who were nominated—itself a significant honor—and who ran in the election. I look forward to working together with both those elected and those nominated and not elected to move the AAG forward in the coming year. The terms of office for those elected will begin July 1, 2019.  

Very best wishes to all,
