Volunteers Needed! Sociology of Development Roundtable Presiders

Please see the important message below from Fauzia Ahmed, our Roundtable organizer! If you would like to volunteer, please contact Fauzia at ahmedfe@miamioh.edu by March 13!

As the Round Table Sessions organizer for our section, I am writing to ask you for immediate assistance: I need volunteers to act a presiders for tables 3-8 ( see below). In essence, a presider keeps time ensuring that all presenters get a certain amount of time to present their papers and then leaves room for discussion. This role therefore, does not require expertise in any particular arena.

I have had a very difficult time finding presiders- perhaps due to the policy that limits people to two appearances on the program. (Non-presenting co-author and session organizer do not count towards that policy.) I cannot submit tables without a presider. Michelle Randall has graciously extended the deadline to March 13.

For the sake of the section, I urge you to volunteer, so that we can have  Round Table sessions at ASA this year. I would be grateful if you would  let me know immediately if you can serve.

May I take this opportunity to thank Jennifer Keahey and Joe Harris for all their support.

All best wishes
