Dear SAEA Members:
I hope your fall semester is off to a great start! The Executive Committee has been busy this summer with a webpage update and planning for the meeting in Dallas, February 1-4, 2014. We have received over 200 proposals for selected papers, posters and organized symposia so we should have a variety of thought provoking presentations and discussion sessions at the annual meeting. Dallas is a great venue and I know that Jeff Jordan has been organizing a great set of networking and social events for our undergraduate and graduate students, the faculty and industry partners as well.
Included in the September newsletter are the bios for the candidates for President-Elect and Director. We have an excellent slate of candidates for both positions. You will receive instructions for voting soon, so please examine these bios closely and exercise your right to vote! The Association needs and wants good leadership to help deliver the outstanding programs our members have come to expect.
Undergraduate participation at the meetings has been growing and we want to see that continue in Dallas. As we have discussed on many occasions, getting students to the meetings is one of our priorities, so please encourage and support your students. Between the networking opportunities, social events and quiz bowl, there are many opportunities to visit with and recruit these students. Please consider participating in the Recruitment Fair. It only costs $100 and offers an opportunity to recruit some excellent students.
As a friendly reminder, please be sure to renew your membership. Membership in SAEA is inexpensive and represents a great value for the money spent. Renewal is easy using our new portal found under the “Payments” button at the top of this webpage.
I look forward to seeing all of you in Dallas!!
