The Transition Coordinating Group (TCG) is seeking nominations and self-nominations from Founding Members for two important new committees within the Coordinating Group. The first committee will be responsible for the publication of Conference Proceedings from the 2014 ARNA Conference. The TCG seeks 2-4 individuals interested in assisting the Committee Chair with design of the process for inclusion of content in the Proceedings, design of the Proceedings manuscript, establishing criteria for review/editing of accepted submissions, coordination of translation for English and Spanish submissions (the Proceedings will be released in both Spanish and English), and creation and maintenance of a production timeline. The chair of the Proceedings Committee is Dr. Elena Polush of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, USA.
The TCG is also seeking 3-5 individuals for a committee charged with developing proposals for the structure and governance of ARNA following the current transition period. (The Transition Coordinating Group serves through June 2014, with a newly elected leadership group beginning their terms of office on July 1.) Inputs to this committee will include an initial report on infrastructure development drafted during the spring of 2013 and the ARNA Strategic and Operational Priorities Plan adopted by the TCG at its November 1, 2013 meeting.If interested in serving on either of these committees, please contact TCG Chair Lonnie Rowell at firstname.lastname@example.org within the next two weeks.
