25 February 2011 • Long-time UCAR president Richard Anthes announced on 25 February that he plans to step down at the end of 2011. Appointed to his position in 1988, Anthes is the longest serving of the five UCAR presidents since the organization was established in 1960.
“I have greatly enjoyed my time as UCAR president,” says Anthes. “It has been amazing to witness and help support the achievements of our employees in research, facilities, and education. We have a first-class group of dedicated, talented staff.”
After he leaves his post as president, Anthes will remain at UCAR for three years through a part-time phased retirement. He plans to work on writing, research, and community and public service projects and will assist UCAR and NCAR management and the UCAR Board of Trustees on special projects upon request.
