Now Accepting Nominations for a General Election to the AISES Board of Directors

Dear AISES Members:

Nominations are currently being accepted for a General Election to the AISES Board of Directors. In total 6 positions are available and all AISES members in good standing are eligible to nominate or be nominated.  Your immediate attention to this very important matter is appreciated.

Election

We are seeking individuals to fill a spectrum of roles critical to AISES’ future.  Candidates will have knowledge and expertise in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines, they understand and believe in AISES’ mission and purpose, and are eager to contribute significantly to increasing the representation of STEM among diverse groups and populations. 

A total of six board seats are open this year in agreement with the board bylaws at 12 total members.

Nominations Process

In accordance with the AISES Bylaws there must one extra nomination for total amount of open Board vacancies. Therefore, we are currently seeking at least seven (7) nominations for six (6) Board of Director positions. For the General Election, the three (3) year terms will be filled by the six candidates that receive the most votes. It is important that these slots be filled to maintain the required rotation of Board Members entering and leaving the Board as stated in the AISES Bylaws. There can only be two Associate members on the Board. We currently have one Associate Board member so there is one additional slot available.

It is the responsibility of the AISES membership to submit nominations for these vacancies, and the responsibility of the General and Associate Members to elect new incoming members to the AISES Board of Directors.

You may nominate any current member of AISES to the Board of Directors. The AISES Bylaws allow for both General and Associate members to be elected to the Board of Directors. You are invited to review the Bylaws which can be accessed from the AISES website at http://www.aises.org/about/board.

The open nomination period is from April 12, 2017 to June 1, 2017. Any AISES member wishing to nominate or self-nominate is responsible for completing the Nomination Form in its entirety and ensuring this form is submitted by June 1, 2017.
