PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENTS

The International Studies Association Nominating Committee invites members of the association to nominate candidates to be considered for offices for 2016-2017, including a president and three vice-presidents, each of whom will serve a one-year term. Criteria for officers are: professional distinction and past involvement in, and knowledge of, the ISA. One of the Vice Presidents shall be resident outside the recognized regions of the Association. Nominations should contain: (1) a detailed letter that addresses the nominee's professional accomplishments and service to the association; (2) a current vita for the candidate; and (3) a short statement by the nominee acknowledging the nomination. The ISA is committed to diversity in its officers in terms of their theoretical and methodological perspectives, geographical location, gender, and ethnicity.

Nominations should be sent to the ISA nominating committee using the following email: nominations2014@isanet.org.  Please put “ISA nomination” in the subject line.

The nominating committee will contact the candidates and ask them to send a short letter (no more than 300 words) indicating their willingness to serve in the position for which they are nominated, briefly summarizing their previous service experience with the association, and stating their willingness to meet the demands of the office.  The ISA President should be willing to travel on Association business. Additional officer responsibilities can be found listed in the ISA Constitution at http://www.isanet.org/Organization/Governance/Constitution.aspx.  The individual nominated may also indicate their willingness to serve in another position; e.g. someone nominated for the role of Vice President may indicate their willingness to serve as President or vice versa. 

The nominating committee will review the candidates' qualifications with respect to the requirements of the position as stated in the call for nominations (viz. academic credentials, prior service to the Association, and diversity) and nominate candidates for approval by the membership.
