Consider Joining the ACASA Board
The Arts Council of the African Studies Association invites nominations and self-nominations for service on its Board. Members will elect up to four people to serve three-year terms. New Board members will begin their date of service at the Triennial Meetings in Chicago in June, 2020.
With ACASA’s growing membership base and international profile, we seek hard working and enthusiastic board members who value team-work and will actively shape and promote the organization’s interests. We particularly need colleagues to serve in one of two Executive posts — Facebook Editor and Website Editor. We also need board members at large, each of whom will take on ad hoc duties during the course of their service.
To apply, please submit 1) your one-page statement and brief bio indicating your interests and explaining how you could be of service to the board, and 2) a brief cv (no more than 4 pages). These will appear online prior to and during the election so ACASA members can make informed selections of new board members. The election will take place electronically during May/June 2020 and the results will be announced at the Triennial Meetings in Chicago in June.
Please send all nominations, candidate statements (300 words), and resumes to the nominating committee co-chairs, Barbara Frank (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Fiona Siegenthaler (email@example.com)
Candidate statements are due no later than February 29, 2020 (extended deadline)
