Congratulations to Greg Lammers.

Man, it’s a day of awesome announcements from atheist groups.  First Joel Guttormson at the RDF, now American Atheists has announced that Greg Lammers will become their national affiliate director.

Greg Lammers, who has served as American Atheists’ Missouri State Director until now, will step up to the role of National Affiliate Director overseeing approximately 120 affiliated groups nationwide.

“I am truly excited by his acceptance of this position,” said President David Silverman. “Greg Lammers is one of the most enthusiastic atheist activists I have the pleasure of knowing. Just last month at our 50th Anniversary Celebration and Annual Convention in Austin, we gave him an Appreciation Award for all of his tireless work as Missouri State Director, working with our seven affiliate and partner groups there. When we decided to appoint a new Affiliate Director, he was at the top of our list and we’re very happy to have him. This is a great step for American Atheists.”

I’m 100% not exaggerating when I say that Greg was the best choice imaginable.  Lammers is about the nicest, most generous person in the atheist movement, and he is a tireless activist.  He has earned this position and will do well in it.  Big congrats to Greg!
