First, on behalf of the entire Section I thank the nominating committee: Martin Ruef (Chair), Emily Barman, Erin Leahey, and Woody Powell, and I thank everyone who generously agreed to appear on the slate. Second, thank you to Section members for a big turn-out. Third, thank you to the ASA’s Section Guru Justin Lini for coordinating the poll. Here are the results:
Chair-Elect (3-year term as Chair Elect 2014-15, Chair in 2015-16, and then Past Chair): Lisa Keister (Duke)
Secretary/Treasurer (3-year term begins in 2014): Michel Anteby (Harvard)
Council Members (3-year term begins in 2014): Gabriel Rossman (UCLA) and Elizabeth Hirsh (UBC)
Our ballot measure passed, so that starting next Spring, we will elect a student member of Council for a one-year term. For this year, we will continue our past practice of appointing the Thompson Award member as Council member.
