Meet NECTAR's new Co-Chairs

Congratulations to Rebecca Gidley (2nd term), Youssef Hafiz, Siva Karuturi and Sean Perera, who have been endorsed by the NECTAR Custodians as the 2019-20 Co-Chairs of NECTAR! These fantastic ECAs have self-nominated to lead the Network on behalf of all ECAs at ANU and to give it a strong voice in academic governance. No additional nominations were received; an election is therefore not required. Learn more about the new Co-Chairs and their visions for NECTAR.

A big THANK YOU to the 2018-19 Co-Chairs, whose terms have just ended: Rebecca Gidley, Umme Habiba Hossain, Claudia Munera and Mohammad Saadatfar. Thank you for your past and ongoing contributions to NECTAR.
