Call for Nominations to its Executive Board.
IVSA is now inviting a call for nominations to its Executive Board.
The IVSA is governed by its Executive Board, which consists of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Technology Advisor, Visual Studies Editor, Student Board Member and nine elected Board Members. The Editor and Technology Advisor are nominated by the President and ratified by the Executive Board.
The following IVSA Executive Board positions are now open for nominations:
- President (3-year term)
- Vice President (3-year term)
- Treasurer (3-year term)
- 3 Board members, regular term (3 years)
- 1 Board member, one-year term.
Board members are expected to participate in Board discussions and decision making in an ongoing manner through email communication, and to play an active role on various IVSA standing and ad hoc committees. Additionally, during their three-year term, they are expected to attend at least two Board Meetings held the day prior to the annual conference.
Nominations and self-nominations will be accepted until 26th November 2017. All nominees must be members of the IVSA. Also, only IVSA members in good standing (i.e., dues paid in full) will be eligible to vote.
Each nomination or self-nomination must be accompanied by a short statement (250 word maximum; longer statements will be edited by the election committee) that describes your academic, other relevant background and interest in the IVSA, and a profile photo that can be posted on the IVSA website.
Voting will take place during the first two weeks of December.
We are looking forward to receiving your nominations.
