Call for Letters of Interest to Serve as Secretary of the PSA

The Governing Board of the Philosophy of Science Association seeks to fill the newly created position of Secretary of the Association to begin 1 January 2020. The Secretary serves as an ex officio, non-voting member of the Governing Board, which meets once each year in the late spring and also immediately before or after the biennial meeting of the PSA. The primary responsibility of the Secretary is to ensure that all required records of the Association are kept, including accurate records of the acts and proceedings of all meetings of the Governing Board. The Secretary is also responsible for ensuring that all required notices are given (such as annual reports of officers or changes to bylaws), and may be asked to perform other duties as needed. The Secretary is an unpaid position, and is appointed by the Governing Board. The Secretary serves for a term of four years, renewable; there is no limit on the number of terms the Secretary may serve. As with all officers of the Association, the Secretary must be a member of the PSA.

 

If you are interested in serving the Association in this capacity, please send a letter of interest describing your qualifications or experience, along with a CV, to office@philsci.org no later than 1 December 2019. Any questions can be directed to PSA Executive Director, Jessica Pfeifer (psa@umbc.edu), or to PSA President, Alison Wylie (alison.wylie@ubc.ca).
