Candidate Statement:
Lee Ann Hennig


Lee Ann has been a member of IPS since 1972 and a planetarian and astronomy teacher since graduating from college. She teaches Astronomy and operates the planetarium at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax County, Virginia. Lee Ann has a B.S. in Astronomy/Mathematics and an M.S. in Secondary Science Education/Astronomy from the University of Maryland. She has served on many committees, held offices, and participated in conferences associated with IPS, MAPS, and other organizations.


It has been a pleasure and challenge serving as IPS Secretary since 1995. My tenure has seen many changes in our profession as well as an evolution in the way we do business as an organization. The experience I have gained has provided a platform for increased efficiency over that time. The secretary’s position requires attention to detail, accurate record keeping, and organization and communication skills. Although these issues are not unique to the secretarial position, they are crucial to the effectiveness of the office. Documenting procedures and working to help the organization to be more responsive to the membership has always been a major goal of Council.

The opportunities and experience I have gained from my positions in MAPS and other organizations and situations have allowed me to learn and apply many of the skills that are required in this office. Working with the IPS Council has been rewarding and the members have been most supportive in my endeavors. It has been an honor serving as secretary and I hope to continue to carry out the goals and philosophy of IPS and will do my best to make it a stronger organization for the membership.

Thank you for the opportunity,

Lee Ann Hennig
