ASC Election

The chair of the Assembly of State Conferences is elected by eligible AAUP members who are resident in states that have active state conferences (see Article II of  the ASC Constitution). In order to be eligible to vote, members must have paid the current year’s dues by February 1 (see the AAUP election bylaws). The chair shall be elected by a majority of those voting in the election, or in cases where there are more than two candidates, by plurality vote. The election for ASC chair will be held concurrently with AAUP Council elections.

Council Election

Read the report of the 2010 Nominating Committee.

Candidates for three at-large and ten district seats on the Association’s governing Council are listed below in alphabetical order, along with their disciplines and institutional affiliations.

District Council members represent one of ten geographical districts (see the districts below) and serve three-year terms.  At-large Council members may come from any of the ten districts. The Council meets twice a year, in June and November, usually in Washington, D.C.

In 2009 the National Council approved a three- year transition plan to allow for the creation of 10 at large Council positions, without altering the total number of Council members. The transition plan reduces the length of the terms of some of the Council members who will be elected in 2011. The following positions are open for election:

Three Year Terms:  three at-large Council positions and Districts 1, 4, 7, and 10

Two Year Terms: Districts 2, 3, 5, 6, 8 and 9

Available biographical information and election statements from each candidate are linked (.pdfs below) and will accompany the electronic ballots, which will be sent out between March 3 and March 8, 2011. Ballots must be returned and received on or before April 15, 2011.
