In 2018, Roe-Hoan Yoon’s, from Virginia Tech, term on the Executive Council (EC) ended. Nominations and an election of the new member of the EC was held in May 2019. Götz Veser from the University of Pittsburgh was elected to a two-year term on the EC. He joins Director of UCFER Chunshan Song, Richard Horner from the University of Wyoming, and NETL’s Omer R. Bakshi and Syamlal Madhava on the EC. We thank Roe-Hoan for his service to UCFER’s EC.
