From the Early Career Committee

The committee thanks the participants of the first mentoring program and discusses the upcoming spring meeting

The Early Career Committee is looking forward to our upcoming 2012 Spring Meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our group has been working diligently on various projects, including a newly designed brochure that highlights the advantages of joining and participating in the Division as an Early Career Professional. We will host a welcome table and a reception, and we hope to meet lots of early career and interested members!

The Early Career Committee would like to thank the participants of our first mentoring program. These include: Dr. Jaine Darwin, Dr. Andrew Eig, Dr. Anton Hart, Dr. Lynne Layton, Dr. Karen Maroda, and Dr. Jeanine Vivona. We are grateful for their generosity, time, and efforts in this endeavor! We are proud to announce that Dr. Anton Hart's group, was accepted for presentation during the Spring Meeting.

Discussant will be Philip J. Rosenbaum, PhD. The panel will be presented at 10 a.m., Thursday, April 19th.
