 JRE Developments            Welcome to the Summer 2004 issue of EERA‘s newsletter. This issue is devoted

                             Conference is March 2-5! EERA is seen as a welcome break from winter and

                             Many of the decisions made for the 2005 Conference are based on the feedback

2 EERA SUMMER 2005
President’s Message – August 2004
    All right, ‗fess up–which one of you people stole my summer? It was May just a little while ago and now it‘s
the first week in August. I didn‘t lose the time, so obviously someone took it from me. I think it‘s some sort of
conspiracy to rob hardworking members of the educational research community of their hard earned time of rest,
relaxation, and research productivity (or at least semi-rest, partial relaxation, and attempted productivity). Well,
while the blue ribbon panel I established to investigate this state of affairs is preparing its final report, let‘s
proceed to the other issues at hand.

    First, as you may have noticed, this issue of Eastern Researcher contains the Call for Papers for the 2005
EERA conference. The conference is scheduled for March 2-5 at the Hyatt Sarasota in Sarasota, Florida. We‘ve
been there before and it‘s a lovely property with excellent facilities. I encourage all of you to submit a proposal
for a paper, symposium, roundtable, or workshop for consideration. Encourage your colleagues and your
students! Encourage your fellow students! We‘re a friendly bunch, we‘re interested in all forms and areas of
educational research, and we provide an excellent venue for that all important first conference presentation–
supportive, reasonably stress free, and our facilitators provide excellent feedback. Also, let‘s face it, Sarasota in
the first week of March sounds wonderful, especially for those of us north of the Mason-Dixon Line where the
snow lies deep and the temperature seems to have a ―thing‖ about going above freezing.

    Another reason to attend the conference (as if you needed another one) is our keynote speaker. Jim Fleming,
our Director of Special Programs, has arranged for Dr. Richard Allington, the Irving and Rose Fien Distinguished
Professor of Elementary and Special Education of the University of Florida to speak to us. Dr. Allington is an
internationally recognized expert in the field of literacy with over 100 articles and a number of books. He has
served as the President of the National Reading Conference and is currently President-Elect of the International
Reading Association. Those of you that have read Dr. Allington‘s research or heard him speak know that he
always has some very interesting things to say, so I know his talk will be both exciting and highly informative.

    Switching gears a bit, a number of you have approached me or other members of the Board of Directors to
say that you were interested in becoming more involved in the organization. Well, here‘s your chance! The
members of the Board serve a two year term and 10 of these Board positions are selected by direct vote of the
EERA membership. We are looking for nominations for the positions of President Elect, Vice President for
Conference Planning, Secretary, Treasurer, Director of Division and Special Interest Groups, Director of
Membership, Director of Communications, Director of Regional Representatives, Director of Special Programs,
and Director of Student Services. The Nominating Committee is in the process of putting together a slate of
candidates. Any current member of EERA is eligible for any of these positions, so if you are interested (self
nomination is encouraged) or would like to suggest someone for consideration, please send me a letter (ED 239,
University at Albany, Albany, NY 12222) or email (mgreen@uamail.albany.edu) containing the person‘s name,
contact information, office of interest, and a few sentences about what you feel you or your nominee can bring to
the office and to our organization by October 15th. The elections will be held by mail in January 2005 with the
results announced at the 2005 conference. Come on, don‘t be shy, you don‘t have to be a long time member or
old and gray to be a part of the Board. Remember, our organization needs the involvement of its members to
grow and prosper and so I look forward to a veritable deluge of nominations.

    Now, to encourage you to submit a proposal for the conference and/or a nomination for a Board position, I‘m
going to bring this column to a close. No tears or cries of anguish, please–the less time you spend reading my
poor attempts at literary genius, the more time you will have to become more involved in EERA and to conduct
your research. Enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to seeing you all in Sarasota.

Hello again student members! I wish all of you luck            cka104@psu.edu
throughout the new semester. I would like to encourage
each of you to submit your work for presentation at the
annual EERA conference. I would also like to suggest
that you submit your work for consideration for our
brand new student award! This idea came about from
suggestions posed by our membership. But remember,
you are also eligible to receive the distinguished paper
award so don‘t think that if you are a student you could
not be considered for that award.

I know the conference is several months away but I
wanted to mention a few things now. We will be having
a student social this year so be sure to check the program
once it is available to see when and where it will be held.
Next, we will be having more workshops of interest to
students so please try to attend those when possible.
Finally, the board of directors is currently working to
establish a mentorship program so I will keep you posted
on the details of that project.
