Greetings Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) SIG members!

I hope this message finds you doing well. During the AERA 2022 Annual Meeting, the SEM SIG hosted two Poster Sessions (one virtual and one place-based) and two Symposium Sessions. During the SEM SIG business meeting, Dr. George Marcoulides was awarded the Structural Equation Modeling Special Interest Group Annual Service Award. Congratulations, George! We appreciate your service to the SEM SIG and to the field of SEM at large.

If you are not yet a member of the SEM SIG, I hope that you will consider joining. Members of our SIG are interested in promoting the understanding and uses of SEM in addition to discussing SEM approaches, applications, and problems. Dues are $5.00 per year for students and $10.00 per year for regular members. You can find more information about joining AERA here.

The proposal submission deadline for the 2023 Annual Meeting in Chicago is August 1 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. I hope that you will consider submitting a proposal to the SEM SIG. More information about the call for submissions is available here.

Looking forward to seeing you in Chicago!
