Relocating to NSF

I am moving to NSF for a one-year position. I feel like I should tell you this because after years as a CSWA member, an AASWOMEN editor, and a Women-in-Astronomy blogger, you readers are closer to me than some members of my own department! The first question I asked was, “Can I finish out my term as CSWA chair if I come to NSF?” Fortunately, the answer was, “Yes.” My husband and I will be moving to Arlington, VA, in two weeks. I start work on Sept. 9. Since there are a lot more astronomers in DC than there are in Memphis, it will be absolutely great to see colleagues, both old and new, a lot more often -- Joan Schmelz
