In November, 2017, Greg Scott stepped down from the NAFUSA board of directors as a result of his appointment by President Trump to return to his position as United States Attorney for the Eastern District of California, where he had previously served from 2003 to 2009. The NAFUSA Board of Directors has unanimously selected Catherine Hanaway to fill Greg’s vacancy of the board in the class of 2018. Catherine served as the United States Attorney for the ED of Missouri from 2005-2009. She is currently a partner at Husch Blackwell LLP in St, Louis.
On December 13, NAFUSA board member Jenny Durkan advised that her new job as Mayor of the City of Seattle requires her to step down from her board position in the class of 2019. President Hal Hardin will call a meeting of the nominating committee to make a recommendation to the board of a successor to replace Jenny. The vacancy must go to a NAFUSA member who has served in a Democratic administration.
