2021 Convener Change
Dear ~~first_name~~

This year is the scheduled biennial TG convener change or renewal process. The changes will take effect during TASA Thematic Week in November. If you cannot find a replacement for your group, please remember that your two years term is once renewable (totalling four years).

I recommend that you start contacting your TG members about potential new conveners for your group. Please also remember that while there are no requirements for this position, it is preferable to have a convener who has some expertise in your TG field. One to three members can convene a group. Groups can also have postgraduate representatives. I suggest you include a link to the Thematic Group Conveners’ Manual in your email to your group members:

Please email Sally (TASA Executive Officer) and me (TG Executive Portfolio Leader) the new convener/s details for your group, for the term November 2021-November 2023, by October 18th or before. Note, the XX ISA World Congress of Sociology will occur during the next convener term (late June 2023)--it has been postponed one year.  

Good luck with this, and looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Dr Ramón Menéndez
Thematic Groups Portfolio Leader
