The SLA Executive Board invites applications from anthropology students interested in serving as the SLA Graduate Student Representative on the leadership body of the organization. Major responsibilities will be: attending the SLA board meeting at the annual meeting of the AAA, and possibly an AAA-level meeting of student representatives; providing student perspectives on SLA programming and events; and taking leadership roles for developing areas of particular interest to anthropology students. The term is two years, from the end of the 2017 AAA meetings in December until the end of the 2019 AAA meetings.
To submit an application for consideration by the Executive Board, please prepare a brief 250 word statement outlining interest in serving on the Executive Board, your involvement with linguistic anthropology, and ideas you have for continuing to strengthen student involvement and representation in the SLA. Include in that document your contact information, current institutional affiliation, and the name and contact information for one reference. Please email this information in a word document to Dr. Brigittine French (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 15, 2017.
You are welcome to contact her directly with any questions or queries.
Please forward this message to students who may be interested in serving in this capacity.
