Dear ASTE members,
The ASTE Elections Committee would like to announce the call for nominees for the following elected positions that will be on the 2021 ballot (number of positions in parentheses):
At-Large Board Members (2)–NOTE: All At-Large Board Members are appointed to serve as chair/co-chair of an ASTE Committee. Upcoming vacancies include the Publications Committee & Professional Development Committee.
Elections Committee (3)
The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2021.
The following information should be submitted for the nominee:
· Name of Nominee
· Position for which the person is being nominated
· Nominee contact information, including email address
The nominee information should be submitted electronically on the website https://theaste.org/resources/submit-an-elections-nomination/. You will need to log in as an ASTE member to submit your nomination. Receipt of the nomination will be acknowledged via a reply message.
Once the Elections Committee receives nominations, potential candidates are evaluated based on their service to ASTE through a variety of venues including service on ASTE committees, service at ASTE conferences, and publications in ASTE related journals. The rubric used to evaluate nominated candidates is found on the nominations page. This rubric will be used to evaluate nominees so that there are no more than 3 candidates for President, 4 candidates for At-Large Board Members, and 4 candidates for Elections Committee. Please note that prior service experience to ASTE is what is primarily used to evaluate nominees. We encourage anyone interested in more information to contact the co-chairs of the committee.
For more information about the roles and responsibilities of the ASTE Leadership Team positions, please visit the ASTE website- www.theaste.org. Information about each of the positions may be found on pages 4, 15 of the link “Statement of Operating Procedures” found within the “About” tab.
We look forward to receiving your nominations.
Amanda Glaze-Crampes and Jeanna Wieselman, Chairs
