The Hagiography Society held elections for two positions in Spring 2013. Kathleen Ashley stepped down as President after three years of dedicated service. Alison Frazier, of the University of Texas-Austin, has replaced her. Amy Ogden was re-elected for another term as secretary-treasurer. Sara Ritchey was appointed as the Program Chair, made vacant by Alison Frazier leaving to assume the duties of her new position as President. In 2015 we will be running elections for three positions: Nominations Chair, Programming Chair, and Communications Chair. To nominate someone or yourself for one of these positions, please contact the current Nominations Chair, Jennifer N. Brown (contact info. on “About” page).
