Call for nominations
BABEL wants YOU! to help assemble a BABEL Working Group steering committee. This group will work separately from–though of course in concert with–the conference programming committees for BABEL 2015 in Toronto, BABEL 2017 on Saturn, and beyond. The steering committee will focus its attention on guiding BABEL into its gorgeous future.
Nominations are sought for TWELVE bright and friendly innovators who work well with others. The BABEL membership will vote on the slate of candidates to fill the 12 slots (at least 3 of which will be current grad students, non-tenure track faculty, and non-academics), with each position having a term of 2-3 years. We especially seek nominations of recent additions to the BABEL crew.
Nominate yourself, nominate another (and don’t worry: we’ll contact your nominee to confirm their willingness to serve), but whatever you do, send your nominations to Myra Seaman (email@example.com) by the last moment of October (that is, the end of Friday, October 31). The election will take place the second week of November, to ensure it doesn’t dim the midterm elections taking place in the States the week before.
