Subject: EAS Section leadership call for nominations


The SAA EAS section is looking for nominations for two open EAS officer positions starting in August 2018.


The positions are 2-year commitments, and a great opportunity to help get involved in SAA leadership and give a little back to the profession.


We are currently looking for:

In the second year, they will be responsible for submitting annual reports to the SAA.

2.      Steering Committee Member: The steering committee help coordinate all activities of the EAS Section, as well as helps with our annual work. They help with projects throughout the year, planning the annual meeting, and general administrative responsibilities.


If you are interested in either of these positions, or know someone who might be, please indicate which position you’re interested in and provide a brief biography, a brief interest statement on why you are interested, and an optional photograph. This information will be posted to the EAS section site during the election period.
