Call for Volunteers: Reviewers, Session Chairs, and Discussants
Opportunities at the 2012 UCEA Annual Convention
“Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action. These actions shape and mold the present into a future of which we can all be proud.”- J.F. Kennedy
What is the value of volunteering? Volunteering is about giving, contributing, and helping other individuals and the community at large. It is working with others to make a meaningful contribution to a better community. The UCEA community needs volunteers for our 2012 Convention.
The quality of the UCEA Annual Convention depends on education researchers with appropriate expertise who serve as reviewers, chairs, and discussants for proposal review and paper sessions. Researchers are encouraged to volunteer and, when doing so, to provide sufficient information on their backgrounds and expertise to enable program chairs to create sessions with persons appropriate to serve in these roles.
The 2012 Call for Volunteers is open and can be accessed on the UCEA proposal website http://convention2.allacademic.com/one/ucea/ucea12/; to volunteer, log in with an existing account or create a new one. Once you have logged in from the main menu go to “Call for Volunteers” and complete the required fields. You can volunteer for various roles even without submitting a proposal of any kind.
Persons interested in serving are encouraged to volunteer early. The portal for volunteers will remain open until May 15 for Reviewers and September 15, 2012 for chairs and discussants.
In volunteering, please keep in mind that the 2012 Annual Convention will be held from Thursday, November 15, through Sunday, November 18, in Denver, Colorado. Also please review the roles and responsibilities of chairs and discussants, as set forth on the UCEA Convention 2012 page. Serving as a chair or discussant is an important and substantive role. The quality of sessions is enhanced by the participation of persons with appropriate backgrounds and facilitative skills. Thank you for supporting this effort and being a part of our 2012 annual convention.
