Call for Nominations

The Nominating Committee of the Association for Documentary Editing (ADE) seeks advice, informal suggestions, and formal nominations of candidates for the offices of President-Elect, Treasurer-Elect, and Councilor-at-Large.

President/President-Elect/Past President
This is a three-year commitment. The President-Elect serves for one year, beginning at the conclusion of the 2013 ADE annual meeting and is responsible for primary organizing of the program for the 2014 meeting. At the conclusion of that meeting, the President-Elect becomes the President of the Association, serving for a year. At the conclusion of the 2015 meeting, the President joins the ADE Council, holding the Past President seat.

This is a three-year commitment. The Councilor-at Large serves a three-year term, beginning at the conclusion of the 2013 ADE annual meeting until the 2016 ADE annual meeting. Councilors are expected to attend meetings, and advise the President throughout the year via e-mail and phone conversations. The Council votes on proposals brought by members and officers, rule changes, and other issues throughout the year. Ideally the Councilor-at-Large should be an experienced member of the ADE whose familiarity with the ADE includes prior service on committees or elected office.

The deadline for suggestions or nominations is March 15, 2013.
