Dear Colleagues,

The ASIS&T International Information Issues Special Interest Group (SIG-III) is pleased to announce that for 2013 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 Award.

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 2012. 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:
a. sharing ASIS&T publications that they receive (the Bulletin of ASIS&T and JASIS&T) with other colleagues
b. promoting the SIG-III paper contest among their colleagues
c. 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
d. having the ability to strengthen the relationships between ASIS&T and the national/regional organizations, and
e. sponsoring lectures on information science topics in their area on behalf of ASIS&T

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 Devendra Potnis (dpotnis at utk.edu<mailto:dpotnis at utk.edu>) or Selenay Aytac (selenay.aytac at liu.edu<mailto:selenay.aytac at liu.edu>).

Deadline for all nominations is December 28, 2012.

Thank you!
