The SECAC is glad to announce that the list of SECDR – Student and Early Career Division and Interest Group Representatives (cf. the ICA Newsletter of December) – is now ready! It will be available on the ICA SECAC webpage. Every Student and Early Career member is now able to see and contact his/her Division and Interest Group Representative.
In addition, your SECDR will be more closely associated with SECAC business and decisional processes. They will be encouraged to be creative forces and propose new ideas for motions and improvement of the organization. Therefore, if you, as a Student or Early Career member, have ideas you would like to relay to the SECAC and the Board Member Representatives, do not hesitate to get in touch with your Division/Interest Group Representative who will convey your request/question/idea!
Finally, Student and Early Career Division and Interest Group Representatives will now be included in the ICA Newsletter. They will each be given the opportunity to write a piece for the newsletter in order to convey news from their divisions/interest groups but also relay questions and requests, and share ideas and tips. This system will be set up starting in September 2018.
Until then, the SECAC has decided to open its April Newsletter to Division and Interest Group Student and Early Career Representatives on a voluntary basis:
If you are a SECDR and would like to write an article (between 200 and 500 words) for the April Newsletter, on any topic (related to academia or life as a Graduate Student/Early Career scholar), please get in touch with us before March 10th at: firstname.lastname@example.org
