REMINDER: Deadline for applications for consideration for open Board member positions is Sunday, December 15th

Hello ACYIG Members,

This is just a reminder that the ACYIG Board is currently conducting open appointments for two Board Member positions, and that the deadline to submit an application for consideration is Sunday, December 15th.

Board appointments are considered to be two-year positions and typically require attendance at the annual meeting of the AAA and the annual ACYIG joint conference during one’s tenure.

ACYIG Board member duties include: maintaining official interest group status with AAA; optimizing professional opportunities for members available via AAA; overseeing and growing professional presence within and outside AAA; and organizing the annual ACYIG joint conference.If you would like to be considered for one of the two open positions on the ACYIG Board, please email one to two paragraphs to Dr. Rachael Stryker stating why you would like to become a Board member and what you feel you can bring to ACYIG. Please be sure to include your name, title, affiliation (academic or otherwise) and email/phone number so that we can respond to you.

The ACYIG Board will make decisions by January 15, 2014, and notify you soon after. Your duties as an ACYIG Board Member begin on February 1, 2014, and your appointment will be confirmed at the ACYIG business meeting in Charleston, SC late that month when you are formally introduced to the membership.

If you have any questions about ACYIG Board member duties or this open Board appointment process, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to answer them.
