The nine new members, who will serve one-year terms, are Talaat Captan, Fred Cohen, Steven Leibovitz, Heidi Lester, William Moraskie, Steven Paul, Lawrence Safir, Rick Sands and Mimi Steinbauer.

The other board members are Sharyon Cobe, Peter Elson, Herb Fletcher, Michael Goldman, Arthur Kananack, Norman Katz, Todd Levitt, Mark Lindsay, Liz Mackiewicz, Andrea Miller and June Shelley.
