Call for nominations for FEd Executive Committee

December seems far away, but the next FEd election will be upon us before you know it. Three executive committee positions will be open: vice chair (who, in subsequent years, becomes chair elect and then chair), secretary-treasurer (3-year term), and an APS-AAPT member at large (3-year term). The latter must be a member of both the FEd and AAPT. The newly elected members will assume their duties in April 2014.

The Forum on Education only exists because of volunteers willing to give a little of their time; it has no paid staff. Please consider running for one of the three positions. It’s perfectly OK to nominate yourself! Or nominate a colleague who you think would do a good job. Serving as an officer is an excellent way to learn more about APS and its many educational missions.

Please send suggestions to
Randy Knight (
FEd Vice Chair, and Chair of the Nominating Committee
