Deadline Approaches December 31: Journal of Consumer Affairs Editor Applications

Learn how to apply and read more HERE

Memorial in the Journal of Consumer Affairs for Ed Metzen was written by Brenda Cude

It is with thanks that ACCI recognizes that Dr. Brenda Cude wrote the In Memorium for Ed Metzen who passed away almost a year ago, on December 26, 2015. The Journal article on page 487-8, Volume 50, Issue 3, did not mention that it was written by Dr. Cude. Thank you, Brenda, for this tribute to one of the leaders of ACCI. We are most grateful for his contributions and leadership, and yours. 

 Self-promotion is not a Sin!

We have learned that the Wiley marketing department for the Journal of Consumer Affairs Tweets. If you publish in the Journal, first follow the Journal on Twitter, tweet about the article yourself, and then Wiley will re-tweet it to their large audience. 

Two New Mentors to Honor

Recently two new mentors have been nominated by ACCI Members. If these folks have touched your lives, perhaps you would like to make a contribution. Funds support students, including travel to the conference. 

Do you have someone you would like to honor? Please contact the ACCI Office or read more about Honor-a-Mentor
