Further information can be found at iasoc.net (currently hosted by judicalis.org as we build our new website).
If you have any thing that you would like to include in a future mailing, or if you have any questions or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will do my best to write a regular newsletter for the members. In it I plan to have regular features such as "Upcoming Events," "Recent Publications," "Scholarships, Fellowships, and Funding" and "Calls for Papers." If anyone has anything they would like to share with everyone else in IASOC, please email me (email@example.com) and I will put the announcement in the next newsletter.
Also, please note that I will update the website with announcements almost as soon as I receive them, so that can be a source of up-to-date information. Those announcements will also be tweeted out from the @theIASOC twitter account moments after they are posted or you can also subscribe to the updates viathe rss feed.
Since I am now serving as the acting executive director and will remain in this role until the next elections, we have appointed Brad Larkin as acting trustee. He brings a lot of good experience to the table and will be instrumental in helping IASOC develop into an organization that links scholars and practitioners. He served as editor-in-chief of the Kentucky Journal of Equine, Agriculture, and Natural Resources Law and has conducted research for an amicus curiae brief for the Constitutional Court of South Africa regarding police brutality as well as completing a law clerk externship with the Supreme Court of Kentucky.
As I noted in my first email to everyone, IASOC is hoping to unveil a brand-new website in spring of next year. Until that website is built, I am using space on my judicalis.org platform to run a bare-bones IASOC web presence. Several of the old features such as the book reviews, helpful links, and the member information will return. There will be a section for the publication monitor. The new website, however, will seek to automate the membership process. A members section will be built that will (among other things) give access to nominations for prizes, provide a means for voting on IASOC issues, list meeting information, and provide a forum for conference panel organization or even online conferencing.
Two new features that will be developed will be a list of doctoral students who are studying organized crime with an aim to get them involved and their research attention and an archive of open-source resources and versions of journal articles. Information on how to populate both databases will be shared once they are built.
If you have suggestions for any other features that you think would be appreciated or needed for the new website, please drop me a line.
