The PSA Ad Hoc Emeritus Committee shall be comprised of three retired faculty members of the PSA who will work to further integrate all emeriti faculty in to the organization. The charge of the committee shall be to provide a shared intellectual and social community where retirees may continue their engagement with teaching and scholarly activities. The committee shall engage in the organization of activities at the annual meeting for retired faculty including, but not limited to, a social reception, organization of sessions and seminars that reflect individual interests and expertise, presentation of informal talks and lectures, presentation of an annual Distinguished Lecture, initiation of special projects for the organization (such as a Living History Project of videotaped interviews), raising money for the Endowment Fund, contributing to the professional development of current PSA members through mentoring activity, and conducting workshops on issues relevant to faculty who are already retired or planning for their retirement.
Members of the PSA Ad Hoc Endowment Committee shall be appointed by the Committee on Committees. There shall be three members on this committee, one from each region of the PSA (northern, central and southern) and they shall serve for a term of three years.
