Interested In an ASA Leadership Position?

Michael R Murphy, Director, Governance and Information Systems

Even though the 2013 election is 11 months away, the nomination and selection process to identify candidates begins now. 

During the upcoming Annual Meeting in Denver, the Committee on Nominations will spend one entire day of the meeting working to identify candidates for the top positions in the association leadership:  President-Elect, Vice President-Elect, Council Members-at-Large, Committee on Publications, and Committee on Committees.  Another group will develop a list of candidates for the Committee on Nominations.  If you know of someone that you think would be good for one of these positions, or if you are interested in being considered for one of these positions, please send the information to us at governance@asanet.org as soon as possible but no later than August 10, 2012. Any background information you can provide about qualifications would be helpful.

At the same time, the Committee on Committees will spend a full day identifying potential members to serve on approximately 15 different association committees, including all of the award selection committees, the four status committees, the Committee on Awards and the Committee on Professional Ethics.  If you are interested in volunteering for any of these positions, please contact us at governance@asanet.org no later than August 10, 2012. Any background information you can provide about qualifications (e.g., CV) would be most helpful to the committee.

Service on an ASA committee or service as an elected leader of the association is one of the strongest commitments a person can make to their profession and to their professional organization. The ASA is a membership organization that operates with member leaders. We need you and we need your voice and your views.

In addition to having a voice in the operation of the organization, members serve on one-of-a-kind networking opportunities that most find extraordinarily valuable.  Whether you’re ready to volunteer or just have questions, please feel free to contact us at governance@asanet.org.
