2014 Officers and Council Nominations Invited
The Association’s 2013 Nominating Committee seeks nominations of prospective candidates for election to national officer positions and to the AAUP’s governing Council in spring 2014. Nominations are due by December 14, 2013.
All members of the Association in good standing, with the exception of associate members, are eligible to be elected to officer and Council positions and to nominate other eligible members. The committee seeks a diverse group of candidates with experience in the AAUP at the local, state, or national level.
Four officer positions are open for election to two-year terms: president, first vice-president, second vice-president, and secretary-treasurer.
Ten Council positions are open for election:
Three at-large Council positions1
One Council position in each of these geographical Districts: I, III, IV, VI, VII, IX, and X.2,3
If you wish to nominate yourself to an officer or Council position OR to nominate another eligible member, you must submit the following information to the Nominating Committee by December 14:
The position for which the individual is being nominated.
The name, institution, and e-mail address of the individual being nominated.
The name, institution, and e-mail address of the individual making the nomination (if not self-nominating).
If nominating for an at-large seat, whether the nomination is for a two-year or four-year term.
In addition, endorsements by letter and/or e-mail message from at least six AAUP members (one of whom may be the nominee) must also be presented to the Nominating Committee by December 14. Endorsements must cite the specific position for which the individual is being endorsed and the name, institutional affiliation, and e-mail address of the endorser. [NOTE: Nominees to a District Council position must be endorsed by at least six eligible members employed in that district.] To ensure that all six required endorsements arrive by the December 14 deadline, we encourage potential candidates (or those acting on their behalf) to collect and submit them together in one letter or e-mail message.
The nominations process is set forth in the AAUP Constitution, available at this link: http://www.aaup.org/about/organization/aaup-constitution.
The Nominating Committee will submit its final report to the Council by December 21. All proposed nominees who meet the eligibility requirements will have their names included on the ballot for the spring 2014 elections.
