We are asking for your assistance in identifying suitable candidates to run for various positions within DCMP in the election to be held this fall. Elected candidates would begin their terms in March 2013.
The election will be held in mid-October.The positions that are open this year are:
- Vice Chair of DCMP (becoming, in successive years, Chair Elect, Chair, and past Chair -- each with distinct duties). These Officers play an important role in representing condensed matter physics within the APS and providing leadership in organizing the scientific content of the APS March Meeting.
- Three Members-at-Large, each serving a three-year term. The Members-at-Large constitute the Fellowship Committee, help select the Invited Symposia and Talks for the March Meeting, and provide advice on issues important to the Division.
Identifying excellent candidates is key to maintaining the vitality of DCMP and its service to the condensed matter community. You may view the list of the current DCMP Executive Committee, including the Chair line and the Members at Large on the Executive Committee page. The Members at Large who are rotating off have ending date 3/13.
Please help us identify such candidates. You may suggest names by completing the web form on the Call for Nominations page.
When doing so, please include a few supportive and explanatory remarks for each potential candidate you recommend.
