NASIG is seeking candidates to join the team of editors of the Conference Proceedings, to serve a term of two years, beginning late February 2011. This is a great opportunity for NASIG members who want to become actively involved in one of the best conferences in our field. We are seeking excellent writers who have editing experience and are able to work under tight deadlines. The editors will together form a team to prepare the print edition of the Proceedings. The Proceedings editors will recruit, select and organize volunteers who will take detailed notes at each program. A major responsibility will be communicating the requirements for the published Proceedings to conference speakers. Before the conference, speakers will be advised on submission formats, deadlines, and copyright requirements. After the conference, the editors will work with speakers on revisions. The editors must be diplomatic but firm about NASIG’s requirements.

-NASIG membership and previous conference attendance
-Attendance at the NASIG conference for each conference year editing
-Prior editing/publishing experience
-Demonstrated writing ability
