Dear Colleagues,
The ASIS&T International Information Issues Special Interest Group (SIG-III)
is pleased to announce that for 2011 we will be able to sponsor another
group of deserving information professionals from developing countries for
complimentary ASIS&T memberships (the financial burden of which would
otherwise be prohibitive).
We are soliciting nominations of candidates for the InfoShare Membership
Please include a Curriculum Vitae and a brief description of why this person
is deserving of membership, including their willingness to promote ASIS&T
within their networks and build relationships between ASIS&T and the
national/regional organizations. Awardees will be decided by a vote of the
SIG-III officers at the end of 2010.  All Curriculum Vitae will be kept
private, viewable only by SIG-III officers.  
Each membership award will be for one year, with the possibility of renewal
for a second year if the new member proves to be a strong advocate for
ASIS&T in their home country during the course of the year. Awardees will be
asked to submit a report on their activities by next year's Annual Meeting,
which may include, but are not limited to:
- sharing ASIS&T publications that they receive (the Bulletin of ASIS&T and
JASIS&T) with other colleagues
- promoting the SIG-III paper contest among their colleagues
- serving as a contact/coordinator for ASIS&T members traveling to their
area who may be able to speak about ASIS&T and information science
-having the ability to strengthen the relationships between ASIS&T and the
national/regional organizations
- sponsoring lectures on information science topics in their area on behalf
We look forward to welcoming new members to ASIS&T from across the globe,
especially from countries that have never been ASIS&T members or have
limited ASIS&T membership, with your help.  Please start thinking about
candidates among your networks and send your nominations of deserving
candidates to Abebe Rorissa (arorissa at albany.edu) or Devendra Potnis
(dpotnis at utk.edu).
Deadline for all nominations is December 15, 2010.
Thank you and best wishes for the upcoming months and we hope to see you in
New Orleans, Louisiana in October!
