Hello everyone,


SIGCIS has a vacancy for secretary. Joline Zepchevski, our hard working
secretary in 2006 and 2007, has had to resign to spend more time on her


The duties are fairly light, and mostly involve taking care of our members.
There is no pay.


As described on our website http://www.sigcis.org/?q=node/6  the
responsibilities are as follows


. Administer the SIGCIS email lists (including maintain and enforcing the
acceptable use policy).
. Edit material on the SIGCIS website dealing with the SIG and its
. Maintain and develop bylaws and other policy documents as needed.
. Maintain the SIG's online membership directory, reviewing and editing
entries as needed.
. Produce the lists of attendees and interests for the SIG's annual
. Welcome new members to the SIG and create accounts as needed.
. Take minutes at Executive Committee meetings.


You would also be a member of the Executive Committee, and be well placed to
contribute to the institutional development of the history of computing as
an increasingly visible and diverse subdiscipline. Additional creative
contributions to the SIGCIS blog, online resources, etc. would be very
welcome.  Over the next year or two we expect to add at least one prize,
expand our travel award program and begin to schedule a symposium in
conjunction with the SHOT annual meeting. It's an exciting time and the SIG
is growing up fast.


The ideal secretary would combine reliability and an eye for detail with an
outgoing personality. As you'd be interacting with the history of computing
community all over the world you would have a chance to raise your profile
and impress us all with your abilities. Planning to attend at least one of
the next two SHOT meetings (Lisbon and Pittsburgh) would be a definite
advantage. Graduate students are welcome, as are people living outside North


If you are interested, or have a friend to nominate, then please let me know
within the next week. We will need to have a secretary in place by the end
of the month to get ready for the Lisbon meeting.
