Digital Medievalist Board Elections

Digital Medievalist will be holding elections in early July for four positions to its Executive Board. Board positions are for two year terms and incumbents may be re-elected. Members of the Board are responsible for the overall direction of the organisation and leading the Digital Medievalist’s many projects and programmes. This is a working board, and so if you are willing and able to volunteer time to helping Digital Medievalist undertake some of its activities (such as hands on copy-editing of its journal) then please take this into consideration when nominating yourself or accepting a nomination.

For further information about the Executive and Digital Medievalist more generally please see the DM website, particularly:

http://www.digitalmedievalist.org/about.html
http://www.digitalmedievalist.org/bylaws.html

We are now seeking nominations (including self-nominations) for the annual elections. In order to be eligible for election, candidates must be members of Digital Medievalist (membership is conferred by subscription to the organisation’s email list, dm-l at uleth.ca) and have made some demonstrable contribution to the DM project (e.g. to the mailing list, journal, conference sessions, or the wiki, etc.), or more generally to the field of digital medieval studies in some demonstrable manner.

If you are interested in running for these positions or are able to recommend a suitable candidate, please contact the returning officers, James Cummings and Marjorie Burghart at:

election at digitalmedievalist.org

who will treat your nomination in confidence. Candidates will need to provide a short biographical statement of not more than 150 words.

The nomination period will close at 00:00 UTC (midnight) on Monday 27 June 2011 and elections will be held by electronic ballot starting on Monday 4 July  2011 and ending on Friday 8 July 2011.

Many thanks,

James Cummings (Director of Digital Medievalist)
Marjorie Burghart (Board member of Digital Medievalist)
