Dear ATIG members,
As Convenor and Convenor-elect, Quetzil Castaneda and I wanted to urge members in ATIG to consider self-nominating for one of 18 Executive leadership positions–from the Nominations Committee (who vets these self-nominations) to the newly formed Programmatic Advisory and Advocacy Committee (M-PAAC).
We wanted to especially draw your attention to this new M-PAAC, which would be responsible for advising the Executive Board on a range of issues affecting the membership. There are 10 positions in total on M-PAAC, including two student positions, and they address important topics like ethics, human rights, gender, labor, and practicing anthropology. While there are no positions that directly speak to Interest Groups or Sessions (or to tourism and heritage), these are important advisory positions that touch on all facets of AAA life. It would, of course, be great to have the ATIG membership well-represented!
Please note the deadline is in a few days — Oct. 5. Self-nominations are then vetted by the Nominations Committee, who will make the final decision on who will run for election.
See below for the link to self-nominate.
Best of luck!
Michael A. Di Giovine and Quetzil Castaneda
