CSTE Executive Board election results: And the winners are…

Posted By Jeff Engel, Friday, June 13, 2014

CSTE held its first ever electronic vote this year for new Executive Board members. Our 2012-2014 Strategic Plan explicitly called for a restructuring of the governance to help strengthen CSTE as the home organization for all applied public health epidemiologists. This restructuring resulted in last year’s by-laws changes, when CSTE voted to open Executive Board elections to not just the one representative from each state or territory but any CSTE active member. With the help of modern technology and our National Office staff, 43% of active members participated in the election.

The new Executive Board members are:
  • Joseph McLaughlin, Alaska: President-Elect
  • Kristy Bradley, Oklahoma: Infectious Disease Steering Committee chair
  • Marci Layton, New York City: Member-at-Large
  • Sarah Park, Hawaii: Secretary/Treasurer
And the winners are… you! If you are a CSTE member, you are represented by these capable and experienced epidemiologists who will advocate for your interests within our professional association and to Congress. The CSTE Executive Board and leadership represents the full voice and power of applied epidemiology in its work to partner with CDC and other agencies, to advocate for better systems and processes, to collaborate with APHL, ASTHO, NACCHO, and other partners, and more. You are the winner in this election, because the Executive Board puts a tremendous amount of time and effort into improving our field that, in turn, improves the public’s health.
Please join me in congratulating the newest members of the CSTE Executive Board.
