At the end of this year, two of our colleagues –Aviva Sinervo and Heather Rae Espinoza — will be finishing their terms on the ACYIG Board. This is part of the Board’s planned rotation schedule, and I would like to thank Aviva and Heather for their leadership in supporting ACYIG over the years.
With these departures, there are now two open board positions to be filled. Per tradition, ACYIG conducts open board appointments whenever possible. The ACYIG Board appoints new board members from among a pool of candidates who have submitted letters of interest for open positions. Board appointments are two-year positions (with a possibility to renew for a third) and typically require attendance at the annual meeting of the AAA and one biennial ACYIG conference during one’s tenure.
ACYIG is now soliciting contributions for the October 2013 issue; the deadline for submission is Monday, September 16th, 2013. All material should be sent to Newsletter Editor, Aviva Sinervo at asinervo(at)ucsc.edu.
