PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. The MPSA organizes a series of sessions at the conference that discuss aspects of the academic profession. Each session will have 4-6 speakers. In February one of the speakers will also be asked to serve as chair. There are no written papers and participation on a professional development session does NOT count against the limit of being on two sessions at the conference. Some Professional Development sessions will be recorded for future release, though only with the permission of the presenters. If you want to suggest other topics to include, please contact the MPSA at email@example.com.
COMMITTEES. The MPSA has a wide range of committees that involve about 150 professional/faculty members. Please volunteer to serve on one; no one will be asked to serve on more than one committee.
DISCUSSANTS & PANELISTS. There are several Junior Scholar Symposia that need a faculty discussant, as well as Traditional Panels.
