As mentioned in the previous post, the SAA Performing Arts Roundtable held its election at the last business meeting in San Francisco. New officers are: Peggy Alexander, UCLA, as incoming co-chair and Lisa Hooper, Western Washington University, as new steering committee member. Also appointed to become the assistant newsletter editor is Mary Gallant from the California Western School of Law, shifting the balance of power decidedly to the west. You can find the contact information for Roundtable leadership here, so get busy contacting them with your ideas for projects, conference session proposals, and the newsletter!
Congratulations to the winners and many thanks to all of those members who volunteered to serve! It was gratifying to see a full slate of candidates for the one-year steering committee position, but I would encourage others to consider running for one of the two-year positions next year. Speaking from experience, it may not be so onerous an obligation as you may imagine.
