CSH Welcomes New Executive Director

The following article is from the Secular Humanist Bulletin, Volume 19, Number 3.

David KoepsellThe Council for Secular Humanism is pleased to announce that David Koepsell has been appointed as its new executive director, replacing Edward Buckner.  After a thorough national search, Dr. Koepsell was selected from among many  qualified candidates. He holds both a Ph.D in philosophy and a law degree and has taught courses in both subjects. He has also practiced law.

Dr. Koepsell will also coordinate program activities of the Center for Inquiry, which has been growing rapidly, opening new offices recently at Rockefeller Center in New York City and Tampa, Florida. It is nearing completion of extensive renovations of its recently acquired Center in Los Angeles. A native of Western New York, Mr. Koepsell’s wife is a practicing attorney.

Dr. Paul Kurtz, chairman of the Center, said, “Dr. Koepsell has joined us as we are preparing to launch a major new national fund drive. He will work closely with Richard Hull, professor emeritus of philosophy at the State University of New York at Buffalo, who has recently joined the Center as development officer, and Barry Karr, its long-standing chief operating officer.”

It was also announced that outgoing Council executive director, Edward Buckner, will return to Atlanta, Georgia, where he will assume the position of southern director of the Council for Secular Humanism. Paul Kurtz said, “We regret losing Dr. Buckner and his wife, Diane, both of whom have served with distinction, to the Western New York area. But he will continue as spokesperson for the Council, traveling throughout the nation, but focusing primarily on the southern states. Ed Buckner came out of retirement to take over the executive directorship, and we are especially grateful to him and look forward to working together cooperatively as the Council and Center continue to grow.”
