Retired from the Board: After a collective 90-plus years of service to CASW, Directors (left to right) Philip Boffey, David Perlman and Warren Leary retired from active Board duty and were honored at a dinner at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC, April 8, 2011. Toasted and “roasted” by long-time Board colleagues, the trio of emeriti will continue as volunteer counselors and fonts of wisdom for current and future Directors. Boffey, an editorial writer at The New York Times, and Leary, a retired Washington-based Times science writer, were given special citations for their work on numerous committees and events for the Council. Perlman, a science writer at the San Francisco Chronicle and a former CASW President, was made a Lifetime Fellow.
