SAF Election: Call for Nominations
The SAF nominations committee hereby issues this call for nominations for two positions on the Executive Committee. The two positions open are President and Executive Committee member. Robin Dillon, our current President, has said she is willing to run again only if there are no other candidates willing to do so. Ami Harbin, the Executive Committee member whose 2-year term is up, has said she is willing to run again.
Nominations, including self-nominations, may be made by any current member of the SAF. For the purposes of this election, “current member” means “dues paid at least through the 2015-16 academic year.” The nominee must have been consulted and agreed to be nominated and must also be a current member of the SAF. The nominations committee will confirm that all nominees are willing to serve. Candidates will be asked to submit statements about themselves and their reasons for running to aid voters in their decision-making.
The Executive Committee consists of 4 members, including the President and Secretary/Treasurer, each of whom serves 2-year terms. During this election, however, we will be voting on an amendment to the SAF Constitution to extend the terms of Executive Committee members from 2 years to at least 3 years.
Nominations for this election will close on Tuesday July 14 at 5pm EST. Voting will take place electronically (by email) July 17-31. Please submit nominations by email to the chair of the nominating committee, Susanne Sreedhar (<firstname.lastname@example.org>).
