Comparative Democratization Section – Upcoming Elections and Nomination Process
We are seeking nominations for candidates for Vice-Chair and Secretary for the Comparative Democratization Section of APSA. Self-nominations are encouraged. Nominees must be current section members. Candidates should submit a short statement (one to two paragraphs) that highlights the candidate’s qualifications and experience to Rebecca Weitz-Shapiro at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for nominations is Feb 6, 2018 and the elections will be held in mid-February. The section’s current officers will finalize the candidate slate.
The Vice-Chairs’s duties include: identifying members for the section’s awards committees and coordinating awards-related business, and assisting the chair in various tasks as needed (for example, leading the section’s business meeting at APSA’s annual convention, providing general guidance and oversight for the section, and corresponding with APSA on section business). The Secretary takes minutes at the Annual Meeting, maintains the section website hosted by APSA, and runs section elections.
