AAA Call for Nominations

At this point of the nomination process I am reaching out to you for help: I would like to encourage you to nominate or suggest self-nomination applications from section members that you know would do a good job in the vacant positions.

As you are aware, the AAA is in the process of gathering nominations for nine leadership positions including President-elect, Executive Board, Nominations Committee and MPAAC (see the complete list below).

Right now there are still extremely few nomination applications. As has been the case in the last years, people do not seem to be coming forward without serious encouragement from friends, colleagues and peers and the association needs responsible people ready to engage with it.
The SA and the EB seem like a natural place to look for nominations and I wonder if you could send an email to your colleagues in the sections you are a member of, and to any other members you think could help, just asking them to be pro-active in this nomination process. The problem is particularly acute this year because we have to fill the position of President-elect who is the main representative of the AAA as an institution.
Please help me achieve a sizeable number of applications for the nomination to these positions. As you know the deadline is October 3, so there is not much time left!

Thank you for your help.
Warm regards

Susana Narotzky

Secretary of the AAA
Chair of the Nominations Committee.

Nomination Process

AAA members nominate themselves via an online application form<http://AmAA.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT0yNDI4ODk0JnA9MSZ1PTM3MjE1MTk2NSZsaT0xNTcyMzk0Ng/index.html>. You must also submit a CV (5 pages maximum) tailored to the position you’re considering, and names and email addresses for two people who will support your nomination. You are welcome to run for several positions, but must rank your preference for each. If you would like to nominate someone who is reluctant to self nominate, you may submit a letter of support for them.
