        Subject: call for ACH Executive Council nominations


The Association for Computers and the Humanities invites nominations for
this year's elections. We are electing three (3) Executive Council members,
and seek candidates who want to advance the field of digital humanities by
helping to run the ACH.

Together with other officers, these are the people who form the ACH's
policies, decide how the ACH will spend its funds, and oversee its
activities. They meet for an annual council meeting at the Digital
Humanities conference every year, and hold discussions during the rest of
the year by email and occasional phone conferences.

Candidates must be members of the ACH and must commit to attending the
council meetings at the Digital Humanities conference. Council members serve
four-year terms. Candidates are expected to be active members of the digital
humanities world. But these are not roles reserved to those in very senior
positions: graduate students have often served on the council, and
commitment to the organization and to the field have usually counted for
more with the membership than job titles.

Nominations should be sent to this year's chair of the nominations
committee: Matthew Kirschenbaum (mgk at umd.edu) by December 1. They should
include an email address for the nominee and a brief biographical statement
for the ballot. You are warmly encouraged to nominate yourself if you are
interested. The nominations sub-committee shall determine a final slate of
six (6) candidates to stand for election to the three available positions.
