Dear Southern Section ASAS Members:
Past leadership in the Southern Section ASAS has been outstanding as the section continues to work for the membership in the discovery, sharing and application of scientific knowledge. The Southern Section ASAS Constitution provides guidelines for officer elections. Each year, the Secretary/Treasurer-Elect will become Secretary/Treasurer, the Secretary/Treasurer will become President-Elect and the President-Elect will become President for the following year. Members of the nominating committee recommend two candidates for the office of Secretary/Treasurer-Elect and every third year, also will recommend two candidates for the office of National Director. Every year we also require nominations for two candidates for the office of Graduate Director to serve a two-year term.
The Nominating Committee is beginning their work and is soliciting membership for potential candidates to be considered for the office of Secretary/Treasurer-Elect and Graduate Student Director. The committee will use the list generated during deliberations to recommend two candidates, for each position, to the Executive Board for the officer election ballot. You can submit your suggested candidates (current member in good standing in the Southern Section ASAS) through the online form. Please submit your nominations by 3:00 PM CT on October 15, 2019.
