Disclaimer: Due to the restructuring of the National AAUP beginning in January 2020, some of the charges and responsibilities of officers elected in the Spring 2020 NYS AAUP Conference elections may change accordingly – for example, the Assembly of State Conferences will cease to exist. We will keep the membership updated as we clarify the ways in which our conference will be impacted by the new structure.
In order to run for any office, a member must submit six nominations from other members of the Conference. These nominations must come from at least two chapters.
The nominations may be in hard copy or e-mail form. The nomination must contain the name of the nominee, the office for which the nominee is running, and contact information for the nominee – mailing address, phone number and e-mail address. The nomination also must contain the name and chapter of the nominator, and contact information for the nominator – mailing address, phone number and email address. The Election Committee will verify that the candidate’s AAUP membership is in good standing.
The nominations may be collected by the nominee and sent in one submission, or they may be submitted individually. In the latter case, the nominee must make sure at least six valid nominations have been submitted. It is advisable to submit more than the minimum number of nominations. It is the responsibility of the nominee to make sure that the Chair of the Election Committee has received the nominations.
The nominations shall be sent to the Chair of the Election Committee as follows.
Mail: 118 Alpine Drive, Closter, NJ 07624. Mark the envelope Nomination.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line should read Nomination.
The deadline for nominations is November 1, 2019.
Once the Election Committee certifies the nominations, all candidates will be notified of the election procedure.
If you have any questions, please contact the Chair of the Election Committee.
