      >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.
      >Most sincerely,
      >Mac Marshall
      >AAA Secretary and Nominations Committee chair
