Because the NGSC will be run by an interim board until elections are held at the Salt Lake City NASSR conference in 2011, and because we strive to have a balanced interim board, we will begin taking applications for three needed co-chair positions.
– 2 graduate students at Canadian Institutions who are members of (or will join) NASSR.
– 1 graduate student from the US who is a member of (or will join) NASSR.
The positions: co-chairs of the NGSC (2 representing Canadian Institutions, 2 representing US institutions). If you have questions about what a co-chair’s duties include, the bylaws should give you an idea – they have been posted to this blog. You can also email us or pull us (especially Dana Van Kooy and John Leffel) aside at the Vancouver conference and the current co-chairs can talk about their experiences and workload in person.
How to apply: Send your CV and a letter of purpose to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 10, 2010.
