NOMINATIONS DUE 14 AUGUST 2015. PLEASE READ BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.

 

Dear Fellow ICMA Members,

As chair of the Nominating Committee, I write to ask you to join in shaping the future of the International Center for Medieval Art by proposing candidates for election to its leadership positions. We seek nominees (and self-nominees) for the following posts:

7 seats on the Board of Directors (3-year term, 2016-19)
5 seats on next year’s Nominating Committee, including 1 Nominating Committee Chair (1-year term, 2016-17)
4 seats as Associates (usually based outside of North America; 3-year term, 2016-19),

Our goal is to foster the continued vitality of the ICMA by including among its leaders colleagues at every career stage, with a broad range of research specialties, and from diverse professional and geographic contexts. To achieve that diversity through a robust pool of candidates, we need your help.

Please share your ideas for proposed candidates with me, via email at david.areford@umb.edu, by August 14. And please take a moment to consider adding your own name to the list—we welcome your participation.


I am at your disposal to talk about possible nominations, as are my fellow committee members:  Christina Nielsen (cnielsen@isgm.org), Dale Kinney (dkinney@brynmawr.edu), Sarah Bassett (sebasset@indiana.edu), Alicia Walker (awalker01@brynmawr.edu), and Asa Mittman (asmittman@csuchico.edu). Don’t hesitate to get in touch. We hope to hear from you soon—August 14 is only two weeks away.   

Best wishes,

David
