The National Community Education Association recently announced that John H. Windom has taken up his duties as the association’s president.

Mr. Windom, 59, will continue to serve as the executive director of community education for the 46,000-student St. Louis school system during his one-year term. Based in Fairfax, Va., the association works to provide its 1,500 members with training workshops, publications, and products to help them improve community education programs, such as parent education and involvement initiatives, and family resource centers.

Lisa M. Maatz is the new director of public policy and government relations for the American Association of University Women.

Ms. Maatz, 35, was formerly the vice president for government relations for the New York City-based NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund.

The 150,000-member university women’s association is an advocate for equity in education for girls and women. It is based in Washington.
