DEAR SACCRS--I received the following from Debra Martin via Kim Baker concerning nominations. If you are interested in any of the AAA positions, I urge you to nominate yourself or someone else (assuming they agree). I agree that the nominations pool needs to be as large and diverse as possible.

> Subject: [AAA_Section_Pres_Listserv] Nominations for AAA Open Positions
> Dear Section Assembly Chairs,
> In order for the Nominations Committee to make a diverse slate that represents all of the interests of AAA members, we need to have a very large pool of candidates to draw from. Part of the job of the Chairs is to alert their members that they should think about nominating themselves for various positions, or to facilitate that by contacting members to see if they would like to be nominated, and then writing a letter of recommendation on line which signals to the candidate to get their materials in. Please work with your members to encourage and facilitate having them be candidates for the various positions!
