issues in transitional societies and equitable development policies; Director of

“We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Hodes to the PSA team.
Through his demonstrated leadership and understanding of today’s national
security and foreign affairs challenges, he will be a critical asset in promoting
PSA’s mission and expanding our bipartisan efforts,” said Advisory Board
Co-Chair and former Senator Warren Rudman (R-NH).
“With Mr. Hodes’ experience serving in various leadership
roles at several of the most well-known global affairs institutions, he comes
to PSA well prepared to take on the challenges of advancing bipartisanship in
Washington on pressing issues vital to American security,” added former
Congressman Lee Hamilton (D-IN), Co-Chair of PSA's bipartisan Advisory Board.
Joy Drucker, PSA’s former Executive Director, was recently

Assistant Secretary of State for House Affairs. PSA greatly appreciates her
tireless dedication to advancing the cause of bipartisanship in U.S. foreign
policy, and congratulates Ms. Drucker on this new position.

challenges. Leveraging the leadership of its distinguished Advisory Board, PSA has unique credibility and access to
