Harbertson to Serve as Interim Technical Program Director
Dr. Andy Walker of the University of California, Davis, who has served as ASEV’s technical program director since the position was created in 2010, has elected to step down from the position. Dr. James Harbertson, ASEV’s second vice president and extension enologist at Washington State University, will serve as interim technical program director. Jim served as the technical enology program director for the technical program committee.
“ASEV greatly appreciates the time and effort Andy has extended in developing technical programs for the society. His ideas, input and enthusiasm helped improve our conferences through the addition of student flash talks and more focused relevant research seminars for our members,” says ASEV President Mark Greenspan.
The board will discuss the appointment of a permanent technical program director during the next few board meetings.
