Lastly, the executive board has various executive positions open, most importantly, the president position. I would love to extend my deepest gratitude for your support over the past 3 years. It has been an honor to serve the NJ Academy of Science (NJAS) organization and its members. As a team, we have been able to surpass all the challenges for the past three years, we created the NJ at the STEM front seminar series, we were versatile and did not cancel any of the annual meetings despite the health crisis, we honored a NJ scientist with the Elite NJAS scientific award, we inaugurated the Colloquium for LIFE for Middle School and HS students, the NJAS newsletter was revamp (Thank you Ms. Donna Leonardi), we PUBLISHED the 2021 edition of the Bulletin (Thank you Dr. Joseph Spagna), and NJAS was recognized as one of the best 2022 STEM organizations in our state by the NJ STEM Pathways. It is time to transfer the president position to the next candidate who would love to pursue this leadership role and continue to work towards the NJ academy of science initiatives. Please send your interest by May 13, 2022. We will showcase the candidates at the 67th annual meeting and allow the NJ academy of science members to vote by May 31, 2022.
