Happy new year from the DARMA President

07 Jan 2019 22:51 | Annedorte Vad

First of all, I would like to wish everyone a happy new year. I hope 2019 will be great and I look forward to work for DARMA and to serve the association and our profession.

I have started updating the DARMA homepage and now realise it has great many features I have not really used yet. I will try to bring these more into play in the future to engage and support member activities and spark a renewed interest in the DARMA networks - such as the Topical networks and the Special Interest groups. Some of these networks and groups have been short-lived others durable - it all depends on the interest and engagement of the members. More about this will follow in the future months where I slowly but surely will work my way through all the site and its functionalities. But if you are interested in volunteering please contact me or the board.

What will 2019 bring? 

Attend a relevant RMA-event?

Upcoming events are found on the DARMA webpage, let us know if some are missing and we will add them; a short overview of the next upcoming events follows here

A new job?

The first job posting in 2019 has also come in with an opening at Aarhus University. If you want your postings listed too please send an email to me or the board. Job openings are also send by email to all members who have not opted out of this.

Voicing your opinion or start a new discussion? 

The DARMA blog is open for comments and feeds. Once you are logged in you can make your voice heard, ask a question or start a discussion.

This will be all for now. I look forward to working for DARMA and hope you will engage too. I thank those of you who have already reached out to me. As last time, I invite everyone to write to me if you have input or ideas you would like to bring to the board or if you want to volunteer for a specific task. You can reach me on av.research@cbs.dk

Kind regards,
