At the annual Meeting of the ASRF, the general Forum voted the following officers to serve over the next two years in the Executive Committee.
Ishmael Munene, Northern Arizona University, President
Fredline A. M’Cormack-Hale, Seton Hall University, Vice-President Diaspora
Ike Odimegwu. Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Vice-President Africa
Emmauel Oritsejafor, North Carolina Central University, Executive Secretary
Christine Mathenge, Austin Peay University, Treasurer
Samuel Zalanga, Bethel University, Director of Research
Christine Mathenge was nominated by the Forum to serve for a third term as Interim Treasurer due to an absence of nominees for the position. The forum also voted that she be affirmed in the substantive position of Treasurer when a constitutional amendment takes effect to permit extraordinary exceptions to the stipulated term of office of Executive officers when the association faces special circumstances such as an absence of nominees for particular positions.
Congratulations to the new Executive Team.
