Vice-Chair role

The Vice-Chair plays an instrumental role in developing and implementing the initiatives of the SIG. The role requires experience in QSP in academia, industry, or government or public sector organizations, including familiarity with the broader space of QSP and a passion and commitment to foster a QSP community and drive the field forward. The Vice-Chair will work closely with other members of the SIG Leadership Team to develop SIG-contributed conference programming, participate in review of SIG working group efforts, help plan SIG activities for ACoP conferences, and help identify initiatives the SIG should undertake in the future. Additional responsibilities include participation at monthly Leadership Team meetings and quarterly Steering Committee meetings (usually via TC; F2F at ACoP), as well as participation in SIG activities at ACoP annual conferences. The Vice-Chair will in subsequent years take on the role of Chair-Elect, and then Chair of the SIG; as such, the anticipated term of participation in the Leadership Team is three years.

Secretary role

The role is an opportunity for a motivated, early career scientist, to gain greater exposure in the community and experience in managing the ISoP QSP SIG initiative. Responsibilities include participation at monthly Leadership Team meetings and quarterly Steering Committee meetings (usually via TC; F2F at ACoP), maintaining SIG documentation (including preparing meeting minutes), and managing communication efforts (in coordination with the SIG Chair and ISoP Director of Membership and Operations). Attendance and participation in SIG activities at ACoP9 is also expected. This is a one-year term,
