Jessica Pfeifer took on the job of Executive Director of the PSA on February 2, 2013. In her eight years in the post Jessica has been instrumental in the transformation of the PSA from a nascent, financially struggling, administratively outsourced, rather conservative and somewhat narrowly focused association into the dynamic, expansive, responsive and exciting organization that we have become. Her job changed throughout this major growth spurt with increasing demands and responsibilities, but also produced more opportunities for the PSA to benefit from her wisdom, her creativity and
her vision. Jessica worked closely with four PSA Presidents (Helen Longino, Ken Waters, Sandra Mitchell and Alison Wylie), multiple members of the evolving Governing Board, PSA committees and caucuses, affiliated societies, publishers, hotels, and PSA members in planning and executing our biennial meetings and the growing number of other PSA activities. Her careful oversight put us in a better position than many associations to weather the challenges and uncertainties of the current global pandemic. The list of reasons for our gratitude is as long as Jessica‘s impact on PSA is indelible. We invite you all to join us in thanking Jessica Pfeifer for her extraordinary service to the Philosophy of Science Association. In recognition of her contributions, we have awarded Jessica a life-time membership to the PSA and a book certificate with Cambridge University Press.
