Message from the VP June 2013

Hello Division H'ers. Here is the blast for June, 2013. I will be late on the July blast; expect it toward the end of July. But, remember--submit proposals!.
1. Annual Conference 2014. Next year's annual conference will be Thursday, April 3 to Monday, April 7, 2014 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The topic is “The Power of Education Research for Innovation in Practice and Policy.”.
2. Call for Proposals. The call for proposal submissions fpr 2014 will be issued soon. The deadline for submissions will be in July. The number of sessions allocated by AERA depends on the number of submissions. Please submit!.
The call will describe Div H's four sections and the types of submissions for each section. Each section has constituted a panel of reviewers. (Thank you, volunteers!) Each submission will be reviewed by 3 people on these panels.
3. Modifications to Division H's Four Sections. Have you ever wanted to submit a proposal to Div H, but it didn't seem to fit any of the current sections? Have you ever been a reviewer and wondered about the fit of a submission to your section? Some of these issues have been raised in the past couple of years. This year, the Program Committee will be revisiting section titles and descriptions. This will not affect this year's call. Any changes will be made for the 2015 call. This year we're just exploring the desirability of change. We will give everyone plenty of time to review and respond to any proposed changes. Our program chair this year is Rosanne Brown,
