Sections and Working Groups
IAMCR has 15 thematic sections and 16 working groups. Members can join up to five (5).
Elections of Sections and Working Groups' officers:
Many of IAMCR's Sections and Working Groups will be holding elections for their officers during IAMCR 2016 in Leicester.
A list with the Sections and Working Groups that will hold elections, including links to their announcements and the candidates' names and statements, can be found here.
Sections and Working Groups are responsible for most of the content of IAMCR conferences. Their heads receive proposals, manage the evaluation process, and structure their programmes. Additionally, some Sections and Working Groups publish books or journals or organise events outside of IAMCR conferences. Seed funding from IAMCR is available for these projects.
The Scholarly Review Committee monitors and evaluates the activities of the association's thematic Sections and Working Groups as described in the document Section and Working Group Activity Requirements, Monitoring, and Evaluation.
