Aw is Assistant Vice President of Campus Life, overseeing international student services, and she regularly presents on this topic and campus interntionalisation efforts.

She will be joined by Sandy Soohoo-Refaei, from Linfield College in Oregon, who assumes the position of Vice President for Member Relations.

Also represented on the Board next year will be Members-at-Large, Simon Adams, Mell Bolen, Arthur Dunning, William R Holmes and Debra W Stewart.
