Recommend Candidates for AAG Honors and Nominating Committees
Call for Nominations: AAG Honors and Nominating Committees
The AAG Council seeks nominations for candidates to serve on the AAG Honors Committee and the AAG Nominating Committee. The Council will prepare the final slate of candidates for both committees from the nominations received, and committee members will be elected by a vote of the AAG membership.
The Honors Committee submits to the Council nominations for awards at least two weeks before the council’s Fall meeting, accompanied by a statement indicating the contribution which forms the basis of the proposed award. Nominations for the Honors Committee may include persons (i) from the membership at large and (ii) from those members who have previously received AAG Honors (links to previous honorees can be found on the AAG Grants and Awards landing page, where the awards are listed on the righthand side). Honors Committee members serve for two years.
The Nominating Committee recommends to the Council the slate of candidates for the AAG Vice President, President, and National Councilor elections. The committee submits its slate of candidates to the AAG office in accordance with the timetable designated by Council. Nominating Committee members serve for one year.
If you wish to nominate yourself or other qualified individuals for service on these committees, please send your recommendations by email to AAG Secretary Thomas Mote by June 30, 2016 (tmote [at] uga [dot] edu). Nominations should include the contact information of the nominee, a brief bio-sketch, and indication that the nominee is willing to be placed on the slate of candidates for election by the AAG membership.
