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 call for nominations was circulated among the membership, and outreach specifically to APSA committees and organized sections was conducted.  The committee met in March to compile a slate of candidates, which is available here for your review. The slate of nominees, along with any additional nominations submitted by petition, will be put to a member vote via electronic ballot over the summer. 

The 2021-2022 nominating committee is Sara Wallace Goodman, University of California, Irvine (chair); Elisabeth Anker, George Washington University; David Darmofal, University of South Carolina; Maureen Feeley, University of California, San Diego; Eric Gonzalez Juenke, Michigan State University; and Kevin Scott, Bureau of Justice Statistics.

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