It is time to renew the DFA board. In accordance with DFA bylaws, a nominating committee — this year made up of Omnia El Shakry, Valeria La Saponara and Greg Miller — has selected a slate of candidates to fill DFA board positions as listed below with the following code: C – continuing; R – renewing for another 2-year term; N – newly elected.
