CSCA - September 2013 Newsletter/2013 Election Supplement

Well – the 2014 Conference in Minneapolis is going to be very exciting indeed! We are looking forward to lots of great ideas, lots of activities, and as usual, opportunity for lots of mingling with old and new friends! There is a reason why our members consider CSCA their “home” organization – we are a team in furthering each others’ careers, friendships, and genuinely care about each other! Conferences are such a good place to get energized, meet up with friends, develop networking, renew enthusiasm in research and teaching, and be part of an organization that is built upon friendship, scholarship, and opportunities.

Please carefully read the program when making your travel plans – we have the Friday night event at the “Mill” and are planning the Saturday dance with great food. The September Newsletter is available on line and has important information about the conference, the 2013 candidate statements, information about our annual election, and information regarding registration for the hotel.

With that in mind, let me direct your attention to some important dates that all members need to be aware of.

1)     Voting for CSCA’s slate of candidates will take place electronically. The voting period runs from October 1 to October 25, 2013.
