There were some new faces at the Northeast Center’s in-person meeting of its Board of Directors (BOD) and Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) this year. Richard Rhodes III, Executive Director of the Northeastern Regional Association of State Agricultural Experiment Station Directors (NERA), and Bernadette (Bunny) Reichle, Northeast CARET Chair, each joined the Board of Directors for a three-year term.

Rhodes and Reichle convened with other BOD and TAC members in Geneva, NY, earlier this month to discuss the Center's progress towards its goals and to provide input into its 2019 plan of work. The meeting also marked the passing of the Board Chairmanship duties from outgoing BOD Chair Gary Thomson, Penn State, to incoming BOD Chair Michael O'Neill, University of Connecticut.

We feel very grateful for the ongoing support and guidance that all the members of our BOD and TAC provide, and look forward to collaborating with our BOD and TAC in the year ahead.
