  1. What is involved in making a two-year committment to the Division G Graduate Student Executive Committee? Would travel be required for meetings outside of the AERA conference?

    1. Hi Jonathan, I don’t think travel is required, at least we did not do it when I was in the Committee. All meetings were via Skype. You will collaborate in specific initiatives (mentoring, outreach, social media, etc); tasks are divided among members. Is this accurate Erika? I think only the junior and senior Rep travel.
