SEALS 2021 election. The Steering Committee will elect three board members at the 2021 Annual Meeting. Two rules apply to all positions: (1) only faculty members from institutional member schools are eligible to serve; and (2) two faculty members from the same school cannot be elected to serve on the board simultaneously. The available positions appear below.
(1) Vice-President/President-Elect to serve in that position during 2021-2022, serve as President in 2022–2023, and serve as Past-President in 2023–2024. A third rule applies to this position: the nominee must be a faculty member (including emerita or emeritus) at a member school located in either Georgia or Alabama.
(2) Secretary to serve in that position from the end of the 2021 annual meeting through the end of the 2024 annual meeting.
(3) At-Large Board member to serve in that position from the end of the 2021 annual meeting through the end of the 2024 annual meeting.
Officers other than the President are eligible to run for re-election. At-Large Board members who serve three-year terms are ineligible to run for immediate re-election but are eligible to run for other positions.
The terms of six board members do not end in 2021: David Brennen (University of Kentucky, continues as past president); Tom Metzloff (Duke University); Caroline Osborne (West Virginia University, continues as president); Elizabeth Pendo (St. Louis University); Charles (Rocky) Rhodes (South Texas College of Law Houston) and Russell Weaver (University of Louisville). We cannot accept a nomination for another faculty member from any of those six schools.
