I am running for Vice Chair in @firstname.lastname@example.org (the International Communication Association's Computational Methods group)! The winner will later upgrade to Chair. The election ends in a few days (Oct 15). If you are a computational communication scholar, I hope you'll vote for me! (1/5)
You need to be a member of @email@example.com and the @firstname.lastname@example.org sub-group to vote. If you do computational work in/around communication, you should *definitely* be a part of @email@example.com! Details on how to vote are on this page: https://www.icahdq.org/page/Election2019 (2/5)
This is basically a "service role." Leadership plans the conference, goes to meetings, and so on. I'm running because although I teach at @UWComm@twitter.com, my background/training is outside com. @firstname.lastname@example.org provided a home for me and an path into the field. I am running to give back. (3/5)
I've posted a candidate statement that you can read on the election site. The things I'm most psyched to do include increasing the presence/profile of computational methods in the field/@email@example.com & working to increase diversity, #openscience, and #openaccess within @firstname.lastname@example.org.

@mako we are missing parts 4 and 5...
@codewiz I can't tell anymore, and the server didn't seem to struggle. L7 monitoring confirms this though:
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
