AAUP Call for Nominations

Dear Colleagues,

The Nominating Committee for the national AAUP’s 2013 Council elections is in the process of seeking candidates. An ad inviting nominations of candidates was published in the 2012 issue of the Bulletinthis summer and in the September/October issue of Academe. The text of this ad may be found on the AAUP website, at this link: http://www.aaup.org/AAUP/newsroom/2012webhighlight/nomcall.htm

As state conference or chapter leaders, you can help us to recruit a great pool of candidates. In 2013, there are elections in six Districts (II, III, V, VI, VIII, and IX) and for three at-large seats. We need at least two candidates for each contested Council seat. You may be planning to run yourself or you may know other qualified candidates. Whatever your situation, please find and recruit candidates and urge them to turn in their nomination materials to nominations@aaup.org well before the December 14 deadline. We invite you to share the call for nominations with your conference or chapter members and hope you will encourage eligible members to run for Council.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Nominating Committee. Our contact information is listed below.

With your assistance, 2013 can be a great election season.
