AAAS Board to Launch New CEO Search

AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner, executive publisher of Science and a long-time advocate of science communication and publicengagement with science and technology, has announced his plan to retire from the association after nearly 13 years of service. Leshner, whose career has spanned contributions as a neuroscientist, psychologist, and science administrator, joined AAAS on 3 December 2001, taking over the chief executive role from Richard S. Nicholson, who had held the position since 1989. In announcing his retirement plan, Leshner commended his colleagues and expressed optimism for the organization's future: "I believe we collectively have set the association on a path that will serve it well long into the future, and, therefore, I leave with full confidence in the long-term health of AAAS and the Science family of journals." .
