Announcements

  • Seeking board members for the 2016-2018 DSG term.

    The DSG is seeking one secretary-treasurer and 2 at-large board members for the upcoming board term. No previous experience is necessary. Grad students are welcome. The new term begins July 1, 2016.

    Nominations will be accepted until June 1 so that the ballots can be emailed as soon as possible.

    If making a nomination, please check to see if your nominee agrees to run. Self-nominations are welcome. All nominations should have a one-paragraph bio and be sent to deborah.metzel@umb.edu.

    We meet periodically via Skype and the work load has been very manageable.

    We hope to see you in Boston next spring.
