Washington, D.C. --The Federal Laboratory Consortium has welcomed eight officers to its Executive Board following the organization’s spring election. Two additional seats resulted in tied votes and will require a runoff election later this month.
The annual election is normally conducted in person every spring at the FLC National Meeting, but COVID-19 travel restrictions required an absentee vote by membership. FLC Chair John Dement, and the Vice Chair, Jackie Kerby Moore, announced the election results, including bylaw amendments that were overwhelmingly approved, to the FLC membership community today via a video bulletin posted on the FLC website.

The changes will allow FLC’s leadership to focus more strategically, and allow FLC’s new cooperative partner, AUTM, a leader in technology transfer, to assume day-to-day responsibility for the Consortium’s administrative, professional development, meeting planning and marketing duties.
