        Subject: Call for ACH Executive Council Nominations

The Association for Computers and the Humanities invites nominations for
this year's elections. We are electing a president, vice-president, and
three Executive Council members, and seek candidates for all these offices
who want to advance the field of digital humanities by helping to run the

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 (or be willing to become) members of the ACH and must
commit to attending the council meetings at the Digital Humanities
conference. The president and vice-president serve two-year terms; council
members serve four-year terms. Candidates are expected to be active members
of the digital humanities community. 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 ach-nominations at digitalhumanities.org by
September 15. They should include an email address for the nominee. A brief
biographical statement will also be needed for the ballot but need not be
included with the nomination. You are warmly encouraged to nominate yourself
if you are interested. Please note that per the bylaws each nominee needs
two nominations to be considered for inclusion on the ballot. The
nominations committee shall determine the final slate of candidates to stand
for election for the available positions.
