CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR HOSTING AND DEVELOPING THE 2019 54th ANNUAL MEETING.For most of its history, the SAS annual meeting was developed by a Program Chair, Local Arrangements Chair, and Keynote Symposia Chair(s) from a single host department/institution. The Symposia chair subsequently served as the related SAS Proceedings volume editor. In recent years, sometimes a single person has organized all dimensions, with student and institutional assistance. Occasionally, two or more institutions (including one tribe) have co-hosted, or co-sponsored special events. A Keynote Speaker of note in the key symposia or conference topic can also present (some SAS funding available toward speaker expenses). Send any questions and your no-more-than-1-page proposal to President Betty Duggan firstname.lastname@example.org, copying to Past President and Councillor Robbie Ethridge email@example.com. DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT: MARCH 1, 2018.
