The Women’s Caucus (WCIS) offers a final opportunity to all members of the ISA to nominate members for TWO open positions on the WCIS Board. Elections will be held at the Caucus business breakfast meeting at ISA on Friday, March 28. We also encourage self-nominations.
Serving on the board is a wonderful opportunity to become involved with the Caucus as well as ISA as a whole. As you know, WCIS “is devoted to upgrading the status of women in the profession of international studies. WCIS seeks to promote equal opportunities for women in their professional lives, from graduate school admissions through all stages of employment. WCIS also seeks to promote women's professional development, both in academic and non-academic professional careers in international studies.” Thus, WE NEED YOU!
The following two positions are open:
1. Vice Chair/Program Section Chair (2014-2016): One year term to serve as Program Chair, and who will transition automatically to become Chair for a one-year term, then in to the Past Chair position.
