ELECTION RESULT OUT!

Dear EMCA community,

we have received the results for the 2014 ASA elections and are happy to share them with you. The newly elected co-chairs are:  Robert Dingwall & Mardi Kidwell

They edged out the other co-chair candidates Morana Alac & Ilkka Arminen.

The two new Council members are: Patrick Watson & Aug Nishizaka

Bob Moore & Merran Toerien were not elected. Thank you to all those who voted, and especially to the candidates.  These were all narrow victories. The section's future depends on people that volunteer for these positions and take their tasks seriously.

Thanks also to those Council Members whose term now is coming to an end: Robert Dingwall, Virginia Teas Gill, Mike Lynch and Alison Pilnick.


The new leadership of the section will be organised as follows:

Co-chairs (2014 - 2016)
Robert Dingwall & Mardi Kidwell

Treasurer (2014 - 2015)
Ruth Parry (University of Nottingham)

Council 
Tim Berard (Kent State University) (2014 - 2015)
Doug Maynard (University of Wisonsin) (2014 - 2015)
Aug Nishizaka (Chiba University) (2014 - 2016)
Patrick Watson (Wilfred Laurier University) (2014 - 2016)
Erik Vinkhuyzen (Past Co-Chair)  (2014 - 2016)
Dirk vom Lehn (Past Co-Chair)    (2014 - 2016)



Thanks also to Virginia Teas Gill and Alison Pilnick for finding the candidates.

We look forward to working with the new co-chairs and council members. The ASA is coming soon, we hope to see you all there. We have decided to cancel the Grad student day this year (announced previously) and instead to work with the new co-chairs and try again next year.


Best regards,
Dirk and Erik
