Steve Pyhrr introduces new editor of the ARES Newsletter
In a message to the ARES membership Steve Pyhrr introduced Susan Thrall Ph.D.as the new editor of the ARES Newsletter. Susan shares her thoughts:
My objective is to bring my skills to the Newsletter, which is a voice of the ARES organization to its membership and the world outside ARES.
I would like to write a few words to become better acquainted, even though I know many ARES members already, having attended ARES meetings for several decades with my husband Grant Thrall.
I am a retired professor of computer science. I have been a co-author of several articles with Grant, which have been published in ARES journals including Journal of Real Estate Research and Journal of Real Estate Literature. I have also published on my own, including a book on programming computer code published by Sage Publications.
Much of ARES Newsletter will remain as you are already familiar. It will include the usual columns by officers; the authorship of the columns changes as the leadership sequence in and rotate out. A few columns are informational, either with factual information compiled by ARES's staff such as a list of important dates, events, and opportunities; or written by committees such as by the Career Development and Placement Committee. A few are written by senior ARES members who are sharing their hard gained experience with ARES organization and the discipline in academia and practice. We are always looking for articles beyond the usual columns. So send me your newsworthy articles and announcements that we can publish, if not in the newsletter on our new LinkedIn and Facebook sites.
All contributions to ARES Newsletter should be submitted to me in Microsoft Word DOC/DOCX format. If your contribution includes an image, it should be high resolution and separate from the document as a JPEG/JPG file. Newsletter columns and articles include photos of the authors; those photos should also be submitted in separate high resolution JPEG/JPG files.
I have a separate email account for ARES Newsletter and business. Please submit Newsletter contributions to me at ARES@BusinessGeography.com . You might recall this email address from the Seattle ARES meetings, with which I assisted Grant who was Program Chair. The 2012 -2013 ARES Newsletter Deadlines (but earlier is always better) are: Fall – September 14 & Spring - February 5
Thank you for the opportunity to become your newsletter editor. I look forward to working with you.
Susan Thrall Ph.D.
