Saw this over at the Monkey Cage:
A group of experimentalists (including Eric Dickson, Don Green, and Rebecca Morton) have set up a web site for members of APSA to sign a petition for a new organized section of APSA for experimental research. The section would support experimental research in the lab, field, and all other variants in research in comparative, American, political economy, and international politics. You can read the petition and sign it at this location. We need to have at least 200 members of apsa sign the petition by the end of the month or it will fail. So, if you are a member of apsa, and are supportive of experimental research, please sign the petition. We believe having an organized section will benefit many who do experimental research and we hope to succeed in our effort.
