First: after serving a three year term, Professor Sarah-Jane Leslie will be stepping down from her position as Chair of the Board of Academic Advisors. We heartily thank her for her invaluable leadership: having been with MAP since its inception, Professor Leslie has helped guide the organization into what it is today.
We're equal parts happy and honored to announce that Professor Ernest Sosa (Rutgers) will be joining our Board as Chair. Welcome aboard, Professor Sosa!
Second: we are thrilled to announce that Simona Capisani, Olufemi O. Taiwo, and Elise Woodard, will be coming on board this Fall to serve as the new MAP Organizers. The primary role of the Organizers is to maintain the MAP network and support individual chapters, and we are confident that MAP will be in excellent hands.
This means that we, Yena Lee, Maegan Fairchild, and Liam Kofi Bright, will be stepping down from our current roles. Having cobbled together the group with little more than some luck and guesswork three years ago, we've been hugely impressed and inspired to see where enthusiastic Cartographers have brought MAP to today. From the dedication, creativity, and success we've seen in their work around the world, we trust that MAP will continue as part of a wider effort in philosophy over the coming years.
We're excited to see MAP continue to develop and grow, and we'll be sticking around as a Board of Trustees to serve in an advisory capacity for the new leadership team. But as our more active role in the organization comes to an end, we want to say: it has been a pleasure working with all of you, thank you for your trust in us, and we are incredibly proud to have been a part of this team.
