From Mary Fischer:
As our Section Nominations Coordinator I’m reaching out to the membership to ask for volunteers to either run or nominate someone for one of our leadership positions. These are volunteer positions that will take up some of your valuable time–but they’re important, intrinsically rewarding, and a great way to shape the directions our section will take and to get to know some of your colleagues. Here is a brief rundown of our open positions and their main tasks (all positions start August 2022):
Below are the 2022 award calls for the CUSS section. All award submissions are due March 1st. Please contact the committee chair with any questions regarding any of these awards. This call is also posted on the section website – https://www.asanet.org/communities-sections/sections/section-award-nomination-calls#communityandurbansociology
Dear CUSS members, I would like to begin my first Chair’s Message by expressing gratitude to Derek Hyra for his leadership during a difficult year and for assembling teams of people who created successful sessions and meetings at the online version of ASA’s annual meeting. I also want to thank our Secretary Treasurers, Mary J. Fischer and Yuki Kato. Special thanks to Yuki, who is staying on in that role for one more year after stepping in mid-term. They have made our section better and are helping me to transition into the role of Chair.
