As a co-contributor follow-up to the post below, I want to add that the APA message that went out specifically notes something which should be of interest to our readers especially:
We have received a good number of nominations to date. We are, however, in particular need of nominations for most of the diversity committees (Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies, Black Philosophers, Hispanics, Indigenous Philosophers, LGBT People in the Profession, and the Status of Women). Additionally, we are short on nominations for the committees on Academic Career Opportunities and Placement, International Cooperation, Status and Future of the Profession, Philosophy and Computers, Non-Academic Careers, and Philosophy in Two-Year Colleges.
Please consider nominating either yourself or someone else.
I can see the committee nomination page (when I log on to apaonline, then click the phrase ‘Members Only’ on the upper-right, it takes me to a page with a left-hand column including “Committee Nominations,” the sixth item under Members Only). So if you need my help, please email me at profbigk [at] gmail [dot] com, and I will gladly nominate you! I am rotating off of the committee on the Status of Women, and not re-upping because chairing my department in fall requires my attention. It’s a great committee! Please think about participating. You’ll meet awesome people and talk about neat topics like the status of women in philosophy!
