SEALS 2020 election. The Steering Committee will elect three board members at the 2020 Annual Meeting. Two rules apply to all 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 2020-2021, serve as President in 2021–2022, and serve as Past-President in 2022–2023. 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 Virginia or West Virginia.
(2) Executive Director to serve in that position from the end of the 2020 annual meeting through the end of the 2023 annual meeting.
(3) At-Large Board member to serve from the end of the 2020 annual meeting through the end of the 2023 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.

We cannot accept a nomination for another faculty member from any of those six schools.
