A word from Amanda Gailey, president of the Digital Americanists Society:
We will elect new officers this week both in-person at our business meeting at ALA (Thursday, 5/23, at 10:30, Courier 7th floor) and via absentee ballot by email. If you would like to run for the position of secretary/treasurer or vice president, please let me know as soon as possible. In accordance with our constitution, our current vice president, Matthew Wilkens, will move into the role of president, and the person we elect vice president will become president in 2015. All offices are two-year commitments. I encourage you to run! Also, if you would like us to address any specific issues at the business meeting, please let us know.
You need not be at ALA to run for office, but if you are, I invite you to attend our panel, “Interpretation, Interface, Archive, Classroom” on Thursday at 4:30 in St George D 3rd Floor.
