Governing Board nominations for 2015

ST&D: Elections to the Governing Board, 2015

Dear ST&D Member,

Two members of the Governing Board of the Society are completing their terms this year.  We express our deep appreciation to Edward O’Brien and Jane Oakhill for their dedication and service over the past six years.  The purpose of this message is to start the process for electing replacements to these positions. The newly elected Governing Board members will assume their positions starting in Summer, 2015.

Before I discuss the election process, I would like to remind you that only those members who are paid in full for 2014 are able to participate in the election or to be nominated as a candidate.  If you have not paid your 2014 dues, please go the website and do so before participating in the election. Also, if your name is not on the list below, you may still be nominated as long as you are a current member before the ballot is finalized. The website is:

http://www.societyfortextanddiscourse.org/

At the end of this message you will find (1) a list of Society members serving on the current Governing Board, and (2) a list of active members who are eligible to be nominated to serve on the Governing Board.  This second list of active members is provided to help you participate in the nomination process.  (Note: If you or someone you want to nominate is not on this list, now is as good a time as any to renew that membership!)

According to the Bylaws, the election of new Governing Board members proceeds in two phases.  First, nominees are solicited from the members.  Of these nominees, “candidates for the election will be selected by choosing those with the most nominations, who are willing to serve, up to a total of three times the number of vacancies.”  Second, “The names shall be placed on an election ballot, which shall be mailed to all members. The Hare voting system will be used with each member rank ordering the candidates” (Article 5, Section 2).

Please note that although student members cannot serve on the governing board, they are still encouraged to nominate eligible candidates for the Governing Board, and to vote in the election. Members can nominate themselves or any other member of the Society. The Society is interdisciplinary and international, and we should strive to have a board that reflects that diversity. Your nominations, and voting, ensure the Society maintains an active, participatory Board to support the diverse, international interests of the membership.

 

Please email your nominations to the Society secretary (wolfem@gvsu.edu) by Monday, October 27, 2014.

 

With two vacancies, up to six Society members may be placed on the ballot based on member nominations. Your participation in this process is an important part of Society membership, so please email your nominations to wolfem@gvsu.edu by October 27.

Sincerely,

Mike Wolfe  (wolfem@gvsu.edu)
