This year, we’ll be selecting a co-chair at the AEA conference GSNE TIG business meeting.

The co-chair positions are 2 year terms.  Your first year, you will serve as a Jr. co-chair as you learn about the responsibilities, timing, and procedures from the 2nd year Sr. co-chair.  For example, I served as Jr. co-chair in 2014, and Kristin Woods was the Sr. co-chair.  For 2015 I served as the Sr. co-chair, and Carolyn Acker is the Jr. co-chair.  If you are elected for 2016-2017, you will become the Jr. co-chair, and Carolyn will guide you as the Sr. co-chair.  The co-chair is responsible for communication between AEA and GSNE TIG members.  The co-chair is also responsible for GSNE TIG activities such as the annual business meeting, peer mentoring program, conference social, TIG website and facebook, GSNE sponsored AEA365 blog posts, and any other activities decided by the leadership and membership.  The co-chair also provides support to the program chair.

Program chair also stays for a 2 year term.  The program chair coordinates review and selection of GSNE submissions for the annual AEA meeting.  Most of the work is done using an online system managed by AEA.  You’ll receive training and attend calls regarding this online system.

The co-chairs and program chair are expected to attend the next 2 conferences, which will be on Nov 8-11, 2017 in Washington DC and TBD.  If traveling and expenses could be a hardship, consider volunteering in exchange for reduced registration and/or hotel accommodations.
