ASE Chief Executive, Annette Smith says farewell in 2014

Annette Smith, ASE CEO, will be leaving her post and moving on to new activities at the end of April 2014.  These past five years have been challenging times for ASE and Annette’s considerable efforts to improve ASE's activities is much appreciated.

Stuart Farmer, Chair of ASE's Council said, "We wish Annette success in the many activities in which she will now be able participate but has been unable to during the last five years, including spending more of her time in Italy actually relaxing rather than working on ASE papers.  We look forward to seeing Annette at future events where we are confident she will continue to promote ASE."

Annette said  “I’ll be very sad to leave ASE at the end of April – it has been a great privilege to work with our members, our colleagues in science education and our staff.  I do indeed look forward to having some time to absorb ASE’s output more reflectively, while continuing to do what I can for science education, education in general, and public engagement with science.”

ASE Council will appoint a new Chief Executive in the New Year.
