The International Organization section of ISA is searching for several new members for its executive committee and for a new section head. Elections will be held prior to ISA 2016 in Atlanta. To be considered, please send a note indicating your interest along with a short bio to Alynna Lyon (alynna.Lyon@unh.edu), the IO section secretary. All positions are for two years. Candidates should be IO section members by the time they take office. Self-nominations are welcome; if you wish to nominate someone other than yourself, please indicate to us that you have their permission. The deadline for nominations is February 5, 2016.
The section head manages the interests of the section in relation to ISA headquarters as well as organizing the section’s contributions to each annual meeting. This includes choosing a program chair who selects papers and panels, setting up the committees that decide on section prizes, and leading new programming initiatives. Executive committee members assist the section chair in these activities.
The IO section is among the largest groups in ISA, with almost 700 members. It is growing strongly and is in a strong financial position.
