Atlas Network is excited to announce that Linda Edwards and Joe Lehman have joined its board of directors.

Edwards is a dual US/UK national who has lived in Texas, California, London, Dubai, Paris, and Hong Kong. Her background is in economics and law. As a serial immigrant, she has travelled extensively in different parts of the world and admires the innovations and advances that have lead to greater peace, health, knowledge, and prosperity. She is a long-time supporter of organizations that promote those goals through education and advocating change (whether incremental or radical) that will lead to greater access, choice, freedom, tolerance, rule of law, and human rights. She is an advisory council member of the Institute of Economic Affairs.

Joseph G. Lehman is president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, an independent, nonprofit research and educational institute in Michigan. The Mackinac Center is one of the largest of 65 independent think tanks across the country that focus primarily on state-level policies that affect peoples’ freedom and quality of life. Lehman’s commentary on public policy has been carried by The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, National Public Radio, National Journal, National Review, Investor's Business Daily, Wired magazine and nearly every daily Michigan newspaper. He is vice chair of the National Taxpayers Union and is active in his community, founding Midland County Habitat for Humanity with his wife Karen and twice receiving the Dow Chemical Vice President's Award for Community Service.

“We're so thrilled to welcome Linda and Joe to the board,” said Atlas Network’s CEO Brad Lips. "Both of these dynamic leaders bring a diverse set of talents and experiences that will help Atlas Network continue to grow in its impact."
