Nominations for Executive Board Elections

Dear friends,

A happy and healthy 2021!

This is a call for MGSA members to nominate candidates for the MGSA’s next Executive Board, which will assume its duties at the November 2023 board meeting for a three-year term.

Current members should send their nomination(s) to the Chair of the Nominations Committee, 

Elsa Amanatidou ([email protected]) no later than February 24, 2023. Please consider the candidate’s investment in the MGSA’s goals and initiatives and his or her ability to work actively with others toward these ends.

For nomination of regular EB members, Article IV.7.g. of the MGSA Constitution states: 

Any regular or student member may nominate a member of the Association for election to the Executive Board. If the chair of the Nominations Committee receives, not later than April 1, four or more letters nominating the same candidate, that candidate shall have equal standing with those nominated by the Nominations Committee.  [Because of time constraints this year, please send nominations before February 24]

For nomination of the graduate student representative on the EB, Resolution 2/10 states: 

(...) Any graduate student at a Doctoral Program in the United States or Canada, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in any aspect of Modern Greek Studies and who is a member of the Association in good standing can be nominated or self-nominated for the position of Graduate Student Representative to the Executive Board; such nomination shall be accompanied by a nominating statement and a letter from the student’s advisor stating the standing of the graduate student in the Program and the student’s project.

For complete details on the mandated procedures, refer to Article IV, 6-7 of the  MGSA’s Constitution.

Thank you very much for your consideration,

Evangelis Calotychos, Executive Director [email protected]
