We are thrilled to announce that Milana Kostic (UCSD) and Angela Sun (Michigan) will be coming on board this Fall to serve as new MAP Organizers. Carolina Flores (Rutgers) is the new director, with Elise Woodard stepping down from that position and transitioning from organizing to the advisory board in 2020. Keyvan Shafiei (Georgetown) is stepping down from their position as an organizer.
The Organizing team now is: Carolina Flores (Rutgers), Milana Kostic (UCSD), Angela Sun (Michigan), Elise Woodard (Michigan), and Jingyi Wu (UC Irvine). The primary role of the Organizers is to maintain and strengthen the MAP network and to communicate with and support individual MAP chapters. We are confident that MAP will be in excellent hands.
MAP’s institutional focus is also shifting, both in response to the new chapters themselves and the new possibilities of the organization's new size and scope. The new MAP leadership will be tasked with taking up the previous leadership’s responses to these changes and are eager for feedback from chapters on new directions for the organization.
Current and past organizers want to thank both past organizers and chapters for their hard work, enthusiasm, and many contributions. It has been a pleasure working with you, and we are grateful for the opportunity to play a supportive role in the MAP network. We are excited to see the organization continue to grow and expand, and we are confident in the new leadership’s ability.
