ASEH's Nominating Committee Seeks Candidates for Leadership

Do you want to help chart ASEH’s course in the coming years? Do you have ideas about how to keep ASEH a vibrant community? Do you have a perspective that you think needs to be heard? Have you admired a fellow ASEH member’s commitment to our common principles, or their efforts to advocate on behalf of others? Perhaps you’ve been astounded by how effortlessly a colleague organized a workshop or conference panel. Or possibly you’ve long admired how a fellow ASEH member instills a rich appreciation for environmental history among public audiences. If the answer to any of these questions is yes—the nominating committee of ASEH would appreciate your help in filling the following imminent vacancies in the society’s governance structure:

One candidate for Vice President/President elect

As Vice President, this person will have overall charge of arrangements for the society's annual program, for which purpose he/she shall also appoint a program committee. He/she shall also arrange joint programs with other organizations in cooperation with the President and members of the Council. He/she shall act for the President in all other matters when the President is absent or unable to act. As President, he/she will preside at all business meetings of the society and shall appoint members of all committees except where otherwise provided for in the bylaws.

Four Council Members (8 candidates needed)

Elected members of the Council shall participate equally and jointly with elected officers in making collective decisions concerning the society where provided for in the bylaws or where otherwise necessary and proper.

Two Nominating Committee Members (4 candidates needed)

These members are charged with identifying candidates to stand for elections, which take place in the January of odd years.
