Dear AAS Member,
The current AAS Councilor elections are for AAS members whose first faculty position was either 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 or 2021. The term of service for Councilors elected this year will be February 2023 to February 2025. The deadline to submit your statement of interest has been extended for two weeks, to Monday, July 11, 2022. At the close of this self-nomination process the Nominating Committee will select three names for each class from respondents who indicate that they are willing to take on this responsibility. The classes of 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, or 2021 will then elect a councilor from the three persons selected by the Nominating Committee.
Councilors sit on the Executive Council:
- They are involved in decision-making and strategic planning for the AAS;
- They are full voting members of the Council and therefore can have a significant input into the future directions of the organization;
- They can bring new ideas forward, volunteer to serve on Ad Hoc Committees, and contribute to program development.
Service on the Executive Council is a significant contribution to the organization and is a great first step towards assuming a larger leadership role.
