APSA Nominating Committee

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 deadline for sending suggestions for consideration by the Nominating Committee was February 19, 2020. The committee will met on March 7 to compile a slate of candidates, which is now available here. The completed slate of nominees will be put to a member vote via electronic ballot over the summer. 

The 2019-2020 nominating committee is Stacie Goddard, Wellesley College (chair); Richard Boyd, Georgetown University; Rebecca Glazier, University of Arkansas at Little Rock; Alan Jacobs, University of British Columbia; Gabe Sanchez, University of New Mexico; and Janelle Wong, University of Maryland.

APSA also accepts nominees by petition. Find more information  on submitting a nominee by petition, and on the APSA election process, here
