Greetings, fellow RUSA members!
In my capacity as chair of ETS Nominations Committee, I’m reaching out to ask for your help. We are preparing our slate of candidates for the coming election cycle and would like to solicit your suggestions for the following positions:
- Vice-chair/Chair-elect: A three-year commitment in total – the person elected to the executive position for the section serves a year as Vice-chair/Chair-elect, followed by a year as section Chair, followed by a year as Past Chair. [View detailed position description for Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect]
- Member at Large / RUSA Board Representative: Serves a 3 year term. Pending the outcome of a vote of the ETS membership in March 2018 on changes to be proposed to the Section by-laws, this position may serve as the official ETS representative to the RUSA Board. [View detailed position description for Member At Large]
- Secretary: Serves a two-year term. [Detailed position description for Secretary]
The term for each of these positions will begin at the adjournment of ALA Annual 2018 in New Orleans. Find more information about the Emerging Technologies Section and view our By-Laws.
If you or someone you know might be interested, let us know! There’s no need for you to check with someone prior to nominating them – the Nominations committee will consider the individuals you suggest and approach the person to verify interest. Self-nominations are also welcome. Please send me your suggestions directly at crgreene at indiana.edu, together with a brief statement of why you (or your nominee) might be interested in serving and what experience you (or your nominee) will bring to the role. If you have questions you can also contact me directly.
Please send me your suggestions by Sunday, August 13th.
