General Objective: Submit nominations to the AAUP Board (usually by March) for candidates to fill vacancies for five positions: a president-elect; a treasurer-elect; and two members at large on the 2017-18 Board of Directors. The nomination report should include a brief biography and statement of interest from each nominee.

In proposing these nominations please keep in mind the following considerations:

  • The need to solicit names of candidates from the membership
  • The demonstrated interest, contributions to the AAUP, and recognized competence of potential candidates
  • Candidates should represent the heterogeneity of the AAUP membership (role at their press, press size, institutional affiliation, and geography)
  • In addition, the association’s commitment to increased cultural and gender diversity should be considered
  • The President must have served previously on the AAUP Board of Directors
