Seeking Nominations for a DDI Executive Board Vacancy

Dear DDI community,

The Executive Board, which is the policy making and oversight body of the Alliance, is seeking to fill a vacancy. Joachim (Achim) Wackerow retired from GESIS at the end of February and is no longer able to serve as an official member on the Executive Board. Achim's term runs through June 2023. According to the DDI Bylaws, "Any member vacancy will be filled by election as soon as possible and that member will begin serving when elected for the remainder of the vacating member's term."

If you are interested in serving, or know of someone else who would make a good candidate, please email me ( by 29 April 2022. We will hold an election in May to fill the vacancy.

Bill Block and Barry Radler, Executive Board Chair and Vice Chair, are copied on this message. Feel free to reach out to them or me with questions.
