The American Society for Aesthetics will elect three new trustees and a new Vice-President this December. As provided in the ASA By-laws, Article VII, the current Board of Trustees has nominated six ASA members to stand for election: Gemma Argüello, Jane Forsey, Robert Hopkins, Anna Christina Ribeiro, Sandra Shapshay, and Paul C. Taylor. The three elected trustees will serve for three-year terms (February 1, 2017 – January 31, 2020).
The Board also has nominated two members to stand for election as Vice-President: David Davies (McGill University) and Susan Feagin (Temple Unversity). The person elected will serve for a two-year term (February 1, 2017 – January 31, 2019) and will then succeed to the Presidency.
Biographical information on each nominee will be posted to the ASA web site and Facebook page this fall and published in the December 2016 issue of the ASA Newsletter.
Additional nominations can be made by any eight members of the Society. All such additional nominations, with the signatures of eight supporting members, must be filed with the Secretary-Treasurer no later than the two weeks following the annual meeting (December 3, 2016). These can be sent by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or through US Mail (American Society for Aesthetics, 1550 Larimer St. #644, Denver, CO 80202-1602), or delivered in person at the Seattle annual meeting in November.
Voting will be conducted on the ASA web site from December 4, 2016 – January 3, 2017. All current members of ASA will be eligible to vote by logging into the web site, looking for the “Members” tab in the upper-right, and clicking the “Trustee elections” sub-menu. If you are not able to vote on-line, please notify the Secretary-Treasurer no later than December 3, 2016, and you will be sent a mail-in ballot. Notification should be sent to the ASA mailing address, above.
Gary Iseminger, Peg Brand Weiser, and Rachel Zuckert will complete their terms as trustees on January 31, 2017.
