Call for Chairs and Commentators

The 2015 ASA Program Committee invites self-nominations from ASA members who are willing to serve as chairs and commentators for a number of sessions that the committee will be constructing from individual paper proposals. We invite colleagues who are not part of a proposed session or have submitted an individual paper proposal to apply.

If you will be part of a proposed session, or if you will be submitting an individual paper proposal, please do NOT use this form to apply.

If you plan to attend the 2015 annual meeting, please submit a brief statement outlining your fields of research, areas of expertise, and topics of special interest.  Include your home and office telephone numbers and preferred e-mail addresses.  Specify the role(s) you are willing to play.  Insert your statement and interests at the top of your vitae (if you add a vitae), or include as part of a biographical narrative. Either the vitae or narrative format is fine.

If you had a user account for the 2014 submission site, you will need to create a new account for the 2015 submission site.

Deadline for submission of materials is 11:59 PM (Pacific) on February 1, 2015. Emailed submissions will not be accepted.
