DPS Nominating Subcommittee Seeks Nominations for Student Representative to the DPS Committee

The DPS Nominating Subcommittee welcomes applications for the newly-created Student Representative position of the AAS DPS Committee. The term is two years.

We are accepting applications via this form until December 1st, 2019. From these applications, two candidates will be chosen to run for election. The DPS Membership will then vote to determine who will fill this position. This position is unpaid.

The timeline for DPS elections is as follows. Nominations will be assembled by the Nominating Subcommittee and announced to the DPS Membership in Spring 2020. The DPS Membership then has 30 days to add write-in candidates by petition (with signatures from 20 DPS Members). Once statements are collected from all candidates (usually early to mid-June), the polls open in mid-late June and close on 31 July. The newly elected members will begin their terms at the Spokane meeting in October 2020.

Please address any questions to Prof. Carrie Nugent, Chair of the DPS Nominating Subcommittee: [email protected].
