Please note that the society 2014 conference will now be held September 17-19 in Tucson, AZ.
Applications for two student representatives are being accepted online until August 23.
If you are a student that would like to be a voice and advocate for other students in the SSP organization, then this opportunity might be for you. The biggest qualifications for student reps are the ability to commit time to the position and organizational abilities. During monthly executive committee meetings you will have the opportunity to advise various subcommittees of the impact on students of their decisions. Student reps should be self-directed and have the initiative to suggest and carry out programs during on and off conference years that benefit students. The monthly time commitment is relatively low around 3 or 4 hours per month. Currently the position will be a 1 year position with a 1 year extension option. Please fill out this online application by end-of-business August 23.
