Sep 2006
chasvest.jpgA National Academy of Engineering nominating committee has unanimously recommended Charles M. Vest, president emeritus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for election as its president, to succeed William A. Wulf. Vest became an NAE member in 1993 and is currently a member of its governing council. He has served on numerous National Academies study committees, most recently the 2005 report "Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future." Wolf, whose second term as NAE president will end on June 30, 2007, is ineligible to run for a third term under NAE bylaws. He will return to his previous position as a professor at the University of Virginia. Voting by the NAE membership will take place in March 2007. If elected, Vest will begin a six-year term on July 1.
