"Serving on the CMA Board as Chairman has been one of the greatest honors of my career," says Simmons. "I'm thankful for everyone, including past Chairs, who encouraged and helped me in this role. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Sarah Trahern is such a gift to CMA, and it's thanks to her leadership and the CMA staff that the Board's vision is executed. I congratulate Jody Williams on becoming the Board's new Chair." See the full board here.
