Amber Gilewski, ICAS Secretary since August 2011, took ICAS to a whole new level by balancing our budget, aiding in fundraising, establishing an online account and assisting with organization of the 2012 11th Annual North American Conference for Critical Animal Studies that was hosted Canisius College in Buffalo, NY.
She will be greatly missed, but we wish her all the best with her new endeavors.
