Call for Nominations for AAA Positions

General Nominations Process (nominations are currently closed)

AAA members nominate themselves via an electronic form; you must also submit a CV (5 pages maximum) tailored to the position you're considering, and names and email addresses for two people who will support your nomination. You are welcome to run for several positions, but must rank your preference for each. Following these hints will increase your chances of being selected.

If you would like to nominate someone who is reluctant to nominate him- or herself, you can submit a letter of support for them. They will receive an email saying they have received a letter of support (i.e., been nominated) and asking them to go online to complete the nomination process.

The Nominations Committee will meet during the annual fall AAA meeting and, from the pool of nominees, recommend a slate of candidates, two candidates for each position. The Executive Board will then meet to make the final decision on the slate. Nominees selected as candidates will be asked to provide a short biography, a platform statement, and a photo for the ballot.

If you have questions or need assistance with the nominations process, please contact Kim Baker (, the AAA staff member who supports the Nominations Committee.
