The AAEA Board is seeking applications for a co-editor of Choices Magazine to help further the strategic goals of the publication as a resource for readers interested in the policy and management of agriculture, the food industry, natural resources, rural communities, and the environment. Choices magazine currently reaches over 2700 non-member subscribers, but there is room to grow.
Seeking Innovative Approaches to Choices
As an online-only publication, Choices Magazine is well positioned to evolve along with advances in communication channels and tools. As such, the AAEA Board is interested in considering innovative approaches to the development and distribution of content via the Choices Magazine.
Applications should include a narrative describing innovative approaches to the development and distribution of Choices content. Additionally, applicants should provide a statement of support from their host institution and a current CV. AAEA will provide a small honorarium and financial assistance for Choices-related travel.
Applications should be sent electronically in a single document to Jessica Weister, at email@example.com by Wednesday, April 20. Third-party nominations of potentially interested candidates who can then be solicited for their materials are also welcome.
Choices editors are responsible for the development and coordination of all content published in the e-magazine. The editors provide leadership, coordination, and oversight of all aspects of publishing in conjunction with the Choices Editorial Council and AAEA Business Office. Once new editors are selected, the editors will divide the editorial responsibilities as appropriate.
Terms and Membership Requirement
Editor terms will be determined at the time of appointment but will not exceed four years. Terms will be staggered in order to smooth the transition of future editors. According to AAEA policies, all editors must maintain current AAEA membership while serving as an editor.
