It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of March and that the conference is just around the corner! 

Join Our Awesome Team! 

In late April, we'll hold elections for a new SIG vice chair-elect. If you have a nomination or if you’d like to join the team, please send us a short bio by March 31. It's not a tough job, because the group really functions as a team. Here are the main duties:

  • The chair’s key assignment is reporting, communication (currently through an e-newsletter and SIG’s Facebook group page,) as well as assisting with the coordination of professional development sessions and general oversight.

• The key assignment for the vice chair is to line up judges for C&A. 

• The vice-chair elect listens and learns the first year, and contributes as he/she can. 

If you have questions, contact Ana Henke (ahenke@nmsu.edu)
