In accordance with the APSA bylaws, the APSA Nominating Committee prepares a slate of nominees for APSA Council and officer positions. In selecting a slate of nominees, the Nominating Committee makes recommendations with due regard for geographic distribution, field of professional interest, methodological orientation, types of institutions where members are employed, race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexuality, disability, and other important forms of diversity, as required by the bylaws (V.3.b).
The 2017-2018 nominating committee was Jennifer Merolla, University of California, Riverside (chair), Scott Gehlbach, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Jennifer Pitts, University of Chicago, Lee Ann Fujii, University of Toronto, Alfred Montero, Carleton College, and Todd Shaw, University of South Carolina.
The committee met in February 2018 to compile a slate of candidates. The completed slate of nominees is available for your review here. APSA also accepts nominees by petition for APSA Council and officer positions. Find more information on nominees by petition and the APSA election process here.
