CEMA Committee Report:
• SIOP 2010
o We are making our plans for SIOP 2010. We are contacted the local Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Atlanta to design an event that will increase the awareness of the profession to undergraduate students. It is our hope that with an initiative like this, we can increase the awareness of the profession to students and increase the graduate population.
o We are also in the planning of another social similar to the one planned in 2008 in San Francisco. We will have details on that at a later date.
• SIOP Fellow Nomination
o We are currently identifying SIOP members who qualify for SIOP Fellow nomination in the hopes to helping put together another nomination packet for this year’s class.
• CEMA Award Fundraising
o We are putting together an ad hoc committee to begin corporate solicitation for the funds required to establish the CEMA best paper award financially.
