2019 ASC Election Information

Elections for the Assembly of State Conferences were conducted on Friday, June 14, 2019, in conjunction with the AAUP annual conference. The following individuals were elected to two-year terms, ending in 2021. Due to organizational changes approved by affirmative votes at the AAUP annual meeting and AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress regular meeting, the ASC will be dissolved at the end of 2019 and officers will complete their terms at that time.

Mark Painter, Misericordia University, was reelected as treasurer.

Marcelo Godoy Simões, Colorado School of Mines, was elected as member-at-large.

Lynn Tatum, Baylor University, was reelected as member-at-large.

The committee worked collaboratively to recruit and review candidates for the 2019 ASC election. Electronic notices were sent to all members in states with active conferences on December 15, January 5, and January 16. In addition, complete information was posted on the AAUP website.

In 2019, the ASC membership will elect three ASC Executive Committee members: Treasurer and two At-Large Members. All three positions will be elected by delegates to the June 2019 ASC Business Meeting in Arlington, VA. Nominations may also be made from the floor of that meeting, provided that nominees receive written endorsement from no fewer than three authorized delegates to the Assembly. Nomination forms will be available to members before the start of the ASC Business Meeting.

The Nominating Committee sought to find at least two candidates for each position. The process resulted in two candidates for the position of Treasurer.
