Volunteer for SPSSI!

As we move into the fall, new SPSSI officers take office and new appointments to SPSSI committees are made; the typical term of appointment runs from September to August. 
I would like to encourage you to consider increasing your involvement with SPSSI, and especially by serving on one of SPSSI’s many committees. 
Currently, SPSSI Central Office is building a list of individuals who are interested in being appointed to a SPSSI position or committee for 2012–2013 or 2013–2014.  Please look over the partial list of committees below, and then email Brad at the SPSSI Central Office,, indicating which committees you are interested in or with nominations of colleagues for different committees.  Most committees do not require any special expertise or prior experience, and we will follow up as committee vacancies occur.  Thank you in advance for your interest and for your active support of SPSSI!
