Leadership Team Update

December 5, 2013

Greetings SIG members!

It's a busy time for all of us - holidays of all sorts, end of term exams for those of you in higher ed, end of year reports for some, and, last but not least, the slowly waning daylight as we get closer to the end of the year. In the midst of all this excitement, we do want to encourage those of you interested in running for SIG office to get your nominations to Sunnie Watson by the end of this coming weekend (December 8th). We need to have nominations in to AERA by December 15th if we are going to be able to make the general AERA election ballot that goes out in early 2014. 

To recap, here are the officer positions that are open:

  • SIG co-chair
  • Program co-chair (full term)
  • Program co-chair (partial term, to fill vacancy)

Terms are for two years with the exception of the program co-chair partial term which is one year. 

If you are interested in running for one of these positions, or wish to nominate someone to run, please submit your nominations NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 8 to Sunnie Watson, SIG secretary by email ( Nominations must include the following information:

  • Name
  • Office for which the nominee is running
  • Institutional Affiliation
  • Contact information (for our purposes only, not for inclusion on the ballot)
  • Biographical statement (250 words max)

AERA election guidelines require a minimum of two nominees for each position on the ballot. Please do consider throwing your hat in the ring!
