Message from the Executive Committee

Dear Fellow ETS Members,

The goal of this short communication from the Executive Committee of the Evangelical Theological Society is to
• clarify the impact of the resolutions adopted at Annual Meetings, including the most recent one
• reaffirm the Society’s foundational convictions
• express our commitment to review, renew, and refine our processes

Clarify the Impact of Resolutions Adopted at Annual Meetings
There have been a number of questions about the resolutions that were adopted at the 2015 Annual Business Meeting. Many of these relate to the content and meaning of the resolutions themselves, but the most urgent questions concern the impact of the resolutions—must members affirm them? Will they be used for screening membership? Do they have binding force, or indeed any force at all?

ETS Annual Meeting Student Scholarship Program

The ETS Executive Committee is pleased to announce the Annual Meeting Student Scholarship Program. This program is designed to help academically promising students who find participation in the Society economically prohibitive, or who come from a traditionally underrepresented group to get to know the Society, its functions, its leaders, and the role it plays in supporting conservative evangelical scholarship. The goal of the program is to encourage and support students, who might otherwise not participate in the Society, to appreciate the value of membership and the profitable part that it might play in their academic and ministry futures.

Scholarship recipients will receive a two-year benefit package including:

Website Feature: ETS Members Publications

The online listing will allow anyone to view the most recent publications by our members, search for publications by subject, and current members will be able to search for publications by author. The five most recent publications will be listed in the right margin of the homepage. (This section will appear once the first new publications have been entered.)

The New Publications page and each of the subject listings is RSS compatible, so whether you want to keep track of all things new or you want to follow a particular subject, just add the feed to your favorite RSS reader and you'll stay up to date with the latest in evangelical scholarship from ETS members. Follow the links on the search page for all the various access options.

The ETS Career Connections pages are designed to help potential employers and job candidates to connect. Through the Career Connections Candidate Listing service, ETS members who are seeking academic employment will be able to post basic contact, education, and speciality information. Candidates will also be able to post a PDF of their CV materials so that interested employers will be able to see their credentials in more detail.

Through the Career Connections Opportunity Listing service, institutions will be able to post new job listings. With space for detailed position descriptions and contact information, institutions will be able to advertise clearly their open positions to evangelical scholars around the world.
