Stand for election

The Newsletter Editor position on the RaAM Executive Committee (EC) is up for election. Find out here what this position entails.

Why should you stand for election?

It is important that RaAM is run by its members. We therefore need people to be willing to give their time and energy to making sure RaAM continues to develop as an international support for research and training on metaphor, metonymy, and other forms of figurative expression. Being a board member gives you the opportunity to be more involved in the RaAM community and to expand your professional network. So, if you are interested in helping, please stand.
