Academic In-House Recruiters (AIR) Update
By Donna Ecclestone, AIR Secretary, Associate Director, Physician Integration, Duke Medicine
The Academic In House Recruiter (AIR) Chapter presented a webinar featuring Dr. Laura Lieberman, director, Office of Faculty Development at Memorial Sloan Kettering on May 14. Dr. Lieberman and her staff foster the career development of all Memorial Sloan-Kettering faculty members and serve as a resource for recruiting, retaining, and supporting their professional growth. Her office includes specific initiatives for women (the Program for Women Faculty Affairs, established in 2005 to ensure equal professional development opportunities for women and men faculty), junior faculty, and faculty in their expanding regional networks. The hour-long presentation was full of great, helpful information! A recording of her webinar is available on the Member’s Section of the AIR website.
AIR members will meet on Monday afternoon at the ASPR Annual Conference, August 12, for our breakout session followed by our all-member business meeting. Nominees for AIR leadership for 2013-2014 include: Donna Ecclestone for president, Lauren Forst for vice president, Jennifer Kambies for treasurer, and Stacey Armistead and Katherine Harris for secretary. AIR members who are not able to join us in Tucson can vote via electronic ballot during the first week of August. Members who will attend the all-member business meeting will vote in person. Clara Irizarry, AIR president, will also present a recap of AIR’s accomplishments at the meeting. Hope to see you there!
