Dear AERA Members,

Professional service is vital to support the ongoing work of our association. As President-elect, I am pleased to invite you to submit nominations to serve on AERA’s committees—for yourself or colleagues. As members of the largest association for education research and scholarship in the world, we welcome the active participation of our members across the substantive, methodological, demographic, and career diversities of our field. 

I look forward to making appointments to AERA committees, as set forth below, over the next 4-8 weeks and value your input. It would be most helpful if you would share your recommendations by Monday, February 22. For each nominee, please send the name of the nominee (including self-nominations), the committee on which the individual brings relevant background to serve, and a one-page biographical vitae to
