On July 1, Jaime Teevan will replace Margaret Martonosi on the CRA Board. We would like to thank Martonosi for her term of service on the CRA Board. Martonosi will step down a year early to focus on other activities. This fall, she will become a co-chair of CRA’s Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research, taking the place of current co-chair Nancy Amato, and serving along with Julia Hirschberg.
