Call for nominations for 3 new aaDH Executive Committee positions

The Australasian Association for Digital Humanities (aaDH) invites nominations for three new Executive Committee positions. The Association seeks to elect three Ordinary Members for 3-year terms beginning in 2013.

To be eligible, candidates must be current members of the Australasian Association for Digital Humanities and willing to advance the field of the Digital Humanities in the region by assisting in the decision making within the aaDH. This includes decisions about how to spend its funding, conference facilitation, and other activities. Early Career Researchers and post-graduate researchers are warmly encouraged to apply. The aaDH is a member of the international umbrella group, the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO), and has close ties to the international Digital Humanities community. Committee members meet by Skype and have ongoing email discussions throughout the year.

Nominations by current members should be sent to the Secretariat, aaDH, secretariat@aa-dh.org by 18 December 2012. Please provide a brief (300-word) biographical statement listing your qualifications and work within the Digital Humanities (and we especially welcome an individual who is willing to work as Treasurer of the Association). You may nominate yourself or another. If you nominate another, please confirm with your nominee that s/he is willing to serve and be sure to include their biographical statement and any other required information.

The nominations must be endorsed by the aaDH Executive Committee and it will determine the final number of nominees for the three positions on the ballot. The election process will begin soon after the due date for nominations.
