Garcia Joins Nominations and Elections Committee of Society for Applied Anthropology

Victor Garcia, director of the Mid-Atlantic Addiction Research and Training Institute, has been elected to be a member of the Society for Applied Anthropology’s Nominations and Elections Committee.

The SfAA is an organization of anthropologists dedicated to the application of anthropological research to solving human problems. Within the SfAA, there are seven standing committees, one of which is the Nominations and Elections Committee. The Nominations and Elections Committee reviews potential candidates for elective offices within the SfAA, informs them about the duties and obligations required by the offices, and distributes information about the potential candidates to society members during the election process.

Every year, two new members are elected by the members of the SfAA to serve on the Nominations and Elections Committee for a two-year term. There are only four members of the Nominations and Elections Committee at one time. Garcia joined the three other anthropologists—Sherylyn Briller, Kathleen DeWalt, and Kerry Feldman—who currently make up the Nominations and Elections Committee at the 73rd annual meeting in Denver, which took place Thursday, March 21, 2013.
