I want to thank all of you who took the time to vote in the DIG elections. We had an impressive 25% of the CM membership vote this year. The results were VERY close so every vote truly counted. As always, we greatly appreciate all of your involvement with and dedication to the CM Division!

Incoming Division Representatives-at-Large:
Christopher Bauman is an Associate Professor at the University of California, Irvine. One of his lines of research is on information processing in negotiations and its implications for tactics that can increase individual or mutual gains. For example, a recent paper and ongoing work explores how contract language can influence regulatory focus and affect cooperation and trust development over repeated exchanges. Another line of research focuses on how people interpret and apply social rules, especially ethics and principles of justice. He has been a member of the CM division and has been teaching negotiations since 2007. So, he has a longstanding interest in and commitment to research and teaching related to conflict management. He would be excited to put together PDWs for the Academy Meeting and help serve division members.
