Dear AAUP chapter and conference presidents,

This message is sent to you on behalf of the Nominating Committee and concerns the spring 2014 AAUP elections.

We are seeking qualified and dedicated colleagues to run for national officer and Council positions, and we need your help. Your leadership role at the conference or chapter level gives you experience that you can contribute to the work of the AAUP’s governing body. We invite you to consider running for a national position.

As a faculty leader, you are in frequent contact with other AAUP members who have the qualifications and dedication to serve the academic profession through a national AAUP leadership position. We welcome your suggestions of potential candidates whom we may contact.

Ten Council positions are open for election:

1. Three at-large Council positions (two are for four-year terms; one is a two-year term)
