Call for Nominations - 2019 Allegheny Mountain Section Officers
We are seeking nominations for the following positions on the executive committee for the section. All section officers participate in three Executive Committee meetings each year. The spring meeting is held at the Spring Section Meeting, usually in April. The summer meeting is typically held in May or June, and the fall meeting is usually held in October. Section officers are also expected to attend the Business Meeting which is conducted the Saturday morning of the Spring Section Meeting. Section officers often serve in other ways as well, such as serving on committees or assisting with the events of the Spring Section Meeting. In addition, all section officers contribute to e-mail discussions about Section business throughout the year. Descriptions of these posts from our bylaws appear below.
1. 2nd Vice Chair: The primary duty of the Second Vice-Chair is to organize the faculty contributed talks at the Spring Section Meeting. This includes collecting the faculty talk registrations (typically sent by e-mail), coordinating with the host institution, scheduling times and rooms, and finding moderators for talks. Much of this work is done in the weeks directly preceding the Section Meeting. After one year, the Second Vice-Chair becomes the First Vice-Chair for one year. The First Vice-Chair acts as the contact person for the three invited speakers for the Spring Section Meeting. Duties include inviting the speakers who have been determined by the executive committee (usually during the summer) and confirming travel, lodging, and registration with the invited speakers. The First Vice-Chair also finds people to meet the speakers when they arrive at the meeting and to introduce the speakers. This work occurs mostly in the summer and in the month before the section meeting. The term of the position is two years total.
2. Newsletter Editor: The primary responsibility of the Newsletter Editor is to publish a newsletter to be disseminated to all members of the Section at least twice each academic year -- one in the fall usually distributed late October and one at least a month prior to the Spring Meeting. The term of the position is two years with possibility of re-election for subsequent terms.
3. Coordinator of Student Programs: The primary responsibility of the Coordinator of Student Programs is to organize student activities at the Spring Section Meeting. This includes scheduling student talks and organizing a student problem-solving competition. The Coordinator collects the student talk registrations (submitted by email), coordinates with the host institution, schedules times and rooms, finds moderators for and prepares the abstracts of the student talks. Much of this work is done in the weeks directly preceding the Spring Section Meeting. The term of the position is two years with possibility of re-election for subsequent terms.
