In accordance with section 2.6 of the Administrative Procedures, ASA is pleased to announce that notices of intent to run for elected offices are being accepted through Wednesday, July 1, 2020. Any prospective candidate for ASA office may send a Notice of Intent to run for a specified office. Position descriptions for each office are available from the Executive Office and Governance Department of the Executive Division. Prospective office-seekers are encouraged to obtain the relevant position description(s), as each contains not only the duties of each office but the inherent time commitment involved.
Notices of Intent are requested to be submitted to Governance staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each notice submitted should be accompanied by a Web-ready photograph, an abbreviated (one-page) curriculum vitae (CV) and a Statement of Candidacy. Governance staff will compile a list of candidates submitted. This list will be published in the September Monitor and will be posted, along with the photo, CV and statement, to the Candidates’ Forum page of the ASA website.
An announcement of candidacy does not constitute a formal nomination to an office, nor is it a prerequisite for being nominated. Nominations are formally made at the first session of the House of Delegates for all candidates as prescribed by the ASA Bylaws.
