Its election time again and nominations are now open for the UPA Board of Directors.  Would you like to serve?  Do you know someone who would be a great board member?

Send your nominations to Mary Beth Rettger (mrettger@mathworks.com) by September 15th.

Nominations should include the name and contact information for the person nominated, and a brief description (1 paragraph) of their experience.  Feel free to nominate yourself!

There are 3 open positions to be filled on this year's board.  Board terms last for three years, beginning in January 2000.

Any active member of the Association should consider membership on the Board.  We need committed, dedicated individuals who are interested in advancing the association and the profession.  Board membership is an excellent professional opportunity, and provides a chance to work closely with a number of your colleagues. Board members are expected to attend two annual 2 day board meetings (generally in January and July), and monthly 1.5 hour phone conferences,  as well as actively participate in or oversee committees.

It's a great experience both personally and professionally.  Yes it is hard work but it's also very rewarding.
