Nominate an OCIS Student Representative

The nominating committee is asking for nominations for the next At-Large Student Representative on the OCIS Executive Committee. OCIS members can nominate a fellow student (or yourself) via this nifty online nomination system. Based on the nominations provided, the nominating committee will prepare a slate of 2-3 members for voting during the upcoming division elections. [You can also nominate members for other offices at the same website.]
There are two student at-large members of the OCIS Executive Committee at any given time, each serving for over-lapping two year terms–beginning and ending at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting (Conference).
My own tenure serving in the position will end in August, 2008. Yukika Awazu will continue serving until August, 2009. The term of the next student elected, is August, 2008 to August, 2010. The staggered terms provide greater continuity and ease the orientation process.
What does a student representative do? There is a full list of duties available on the OCIS website. In addition, student representatives have been quite active in maintaining this website.
Who is eligible to serve?Any student member of OCIS is eligible to serve. The term runs through August, 2010, so the optimal candidate (in my opinion) is someone who plans to start their post-student career no earlier than that date (e.g., they plan to be “on the market” no sooner than Fall, 2009).
Any questions? Ask away. I’ll do my best to answer them.
