Call for Nominations for the SAP IG Executive Team

sap-plainThe SAP IG would not work without the voluntary support by its members. Much of this work, e.g., reviewing activities, is informal in nature and invaluably contributes to the ongoing development of the Interest Group. In addition, the SAP IG is steered by an Executive Team that ascribes formal roles to some of its members and is in charge of important managerial tasks. Until February 28th, you can nominate members (including yourself) who you think might be interested in and capable of doing some of these tasks. Specifically, nominations are sought for the following positions:

  1. PDW Chair
  2. Secretary

These roles are described as follows:
