Eli is joining the AASECT Board as the Communications Steering Committee Chair, where he will be working to help support the continued improvements of the AASECT list-serve, website, e-blasts, and other related services. “I am particularly interested in helping to make all of the electronic communications from and to AASECT members run more smoothly, and exploring potential options to make the website easier for folks to navigate.” says Eli. Additionally, he is dedicated to working towards an organizational goal of being an organization that is a welcoming, supportive professional home for all sexuality educators, counselors and therapists — particularly our current and future members of color and early career professionals. “I encourage folks to reach out with their suggestions and feedback –both constructive and commendations– since that helps us to guide the related processes, and ensures that we are representing the views of current and future AASECT members.” To reach Eli, please email email@example.com
