Call for ASA President-elect, Vice President Nominations
Mary Ellen Bock, Committee on Nominations Chair
The ASA needs your help. Nominations are being sought for ASA president-elect and vice president candidates for the 2014 election year. Yes, the 2013 elections have yet to be held, but the Committee on Nominations needs time to evaluate nominations to propose the best possible slate of candidates in 2014 (to begin in 2015) for these critical positions.
As a member of the ASA, you recognize the importance of leadership in our diverse, complex, and multidisciplinary field. You and all fellow ASA members deserve visionary leaders who can ensure our discipline has a voice at the table where appropriate, whether it be in academia; research firms; federal, state, or local government; or nonprofit organizations. This is why we need your input.
For this election cycle, the president-elect will be nominated from academe and the vice president from business and industry. Think about colleagues and associates who are members of the ASA and would make good candidates for these positions. Think about members who have helped run a conference or are active in your section or chapter. Then, nominate your choices for the 2014 president-elect and vice president by emailing Mary Ellen Bock, chair of the Committee on Nominations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Pam Craven, ASA executive secretary, at email@example.com. Forward as much information about your nominee as possible (though this is optional). The committee will research each candidate thoroughly and discretely.
The deadline for nominations is February 1, 2013.
