>Dear AAA Members,
> This is to encourage you to consider nominating yourself or someone else
>who you think might be interested and willing to possibly run for one of
>the twenty AAA leadership positions to be contested in the Spring 2006
>election. All of them are for 3-year terms to begin in November 2006,
>following that year's annual meeting. Details on the nomination process
>are posted on the AAA website
>http://www.aaanet.org/committees/nom/index.htm . The deadline for
>nominations to be received is October 1st.
> The 2006 election concerns one of the three AAA officer positions
>(Secretary), four seats on the AAA Executive Board (one Cultural seat, one
>Student seat, and two Undesignated seats), and fifteen different committee
>positions (seven of them are Designated and eight are Undesignated),
>including the following committees: Committee on the Status of Women in
>Anthropology; Ethics; Human Rights; Long-Range Planning; Minority Issues;
>Nominations; and Public Policy. Details about the duties of these
>committees also can be found on the AAA website.
> Please understand that nomination does not automatically assure that the
>nominee's name will appear on the ballot, although the odds are increased
>when the nominee indicates a willingness to be considered for more than one
>open position. It is the task of the Nominations Committee to sort through
>all nomination materials we receive and to develop a slate of candidates to
>be presented to the AAA Executive Board at the annual meeting for final
>approval. Our task is greatly aided when we have a sizeable pool of
>potential candidates from which to draw, so please consider how you or
>someone whose skills you admire might contribute to keeping AAA strong in
>the years to come.
>AAA Secretary and Nominations Committee chair
