SEALS 2019 election. The Steering Committee will elect two board members at the 2019 Annual Meeting. Two rules apply to both positions: (1) only faculty members from institutional member schools are eligible to serve; and (2) two faculty members from the same school cannot be elected to serve on the board simultaneously. The available positions appear below.
(1) Vice-President/President-Elect to serve in that position during 2019–2020, serve as President in 2020–2021, and serve as Past-President in 2021–2022. A third rule applies to this position: the nominee must be a faculty member (including emerita or emeritus) at a member school located in either Tennessee or Kentucky.
(2) At-Large Board member to serve from the end of the 2019 annual meeting through the end of the 2022 annual meeting.
Officers other than the President are eligible to run for re-election. At-Large Board members who serve three-year terms are ineligible to run for immediate re-election but are eligible to run for other positions.
The terms of seven board members do not end in 2019: Kathy Cerminara (Nova Southeastern University); Margaret Hu (Washington and Lee University); Melissa Lonegrass (Louisiana State University); Colin Marks (St. Mary’s University); Tom Metzloff (Duke University); Ron Rychlak (University of Mississippi); and Russell Weaver (University of Louisville). We cannot accept a nomination for another faculty member from any of those seven schools.
The terms of two board members end in 2019: Billie Jo Kaufman (American University); and Lou Virelli (Stetson University). We can accept a nomination for another faculty member from those schools.

If you nominate another person, please cc him/her so that Kathy knows you have ascertained the nominee’s willingness to serve.
