The WiR officially became a Section at the Fall 2018 Annual Meeting of the ARS.  At their first business meeting the below slate of officers was elected.  The WiR leadership wishes to thank those who previously served on the Governing Council, the prior working group of the WiR, without whose guidance and efforts the WiR would not be where it is today.
