 CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR SECRETARY-TREASURER
 OF THE LINGUISTIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA

The Secretary-Treasurer is the constitutionally designated chief fiscal
officer of the Society. The responsibilities of the Secretary-Treasurer
shall include keeping the records of the deliberations of the Society
and the Executive Committee, presenting an annual report to the Society,
which shall be published by the Society, supervising publications of the
Society which are not the responsibility of the Editor, and such
functions as may be assigned by the President and the Executive
Committee. Although the Secretary-Treasurer is elected annually, the
recent tradition has been to serve for five consecutive years.

During their term in office, all past Secretary-Treasurers have been
faculty members in residence at their own universities. They have been
able to continue to pursue research interests, to maintain faculty
commitments and to meet administrative responsibilities because the work
of the Society is generally carried out by the Secretariat in
Washington. The Secretariat, currently staffed by 3 employees,
administers and manages the work of the Society under the direction of
and in frequent communication with the Secretary-Treasurer.

Each year, the Secretary-Treasurer receives a modest honorarium in
recognition of service, and is reimbursed for office supplies and the
expense of a telephone line at his or her university office, as well as
for travel on LSA business.

The members of the Ad Hoc Secretary-Treasurer Search Committee welcome
applications and nominations from any member. The Committee would also
be pleased to respond to inquiries about the position and to supply
detailed information on the responsibilities. All applications and
nominations should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae and be sent to
the Ad Hoc Secretary-Treasurer Search Committee, c/o LSA Secretariat,
1325 18th Street, NW, Suite 211, Washington, DC 20036-6501.

The members of the Ad Hoc Secretary-Treasurer Search Committee are:
D. Terence Langendoen, University of Arizona, Chair (langendtarizona.edu)
Barbara Abbott, Michigan State University (abbottmsu.edu)
Ivan Sag, Stanford University (sagrussell.stanford.edu)
