The election for APS’s topical group on gravitation (GGR) has concluded, and I have been elected as one of the new members-at-large! Thanks to everyone who voted. I will take my new responsibilities seriously and give back to our community as best I can. Congratulations to the other newly-elected executive committee members: vice chair, Emanuele Berti; member-at-large, Kelly Holley-Bockelmann; and student member-at-large, Megan Jones. See you all in April!
