Deborah Runkle is retiring from AAAS, effective December 2020. For more than 20 years, Deborah has been the liaison between the ABA (specifically SciTech) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the oldest, continuously operating scientific support and trade organization in the U.S. AAAS effectively advocates for science—even against lawyers!—and Deborah has done the same. She is such a legend in our field that trying to describe her influence is like trying to describe the moon’s influence on the night.
