From the CSU-AAUP Nominations/Elections Committee: Russell Gladstone WCSU, Chr.; Theresa Bouley ECSU; Sue Holt, CCSU; Zak Tomczak, SCSU

September 19, 2016 – Pursuant to the CSU-AAUP Constitution, on June 1, Elena Tapia, Linguistics, ECSU, former CSU-AAUP vice president, assumed the office of president after the resignation of Vijay Nair on May 31, 2016. This left a vacancy in the office of vice president. President Tapia appointed Patricia O’Neill, Psychology, WCSU, as interim vice president, however, since the length of the unexpired term of vice president is more than six months (May 31, 2017), the CSU-AAUP Constitution requires that a special election be held. Therefore, we are soliciting nominations for the office of vice president to serve through May 31, 2017. Click here to see the Nominations Form and a description of the CSU-AAUP officer positions.

CSU-AAUP members may nominate themselves or any other member for vice president. Use the attached Nominations form and facsimiles to nominate as many people as you like. Nominees must be CSU-AAUP members. The Nominations/Elections Committee will accept nominations until noon on Monday October 17th. The e-voting will commence on or about November 7th and end at noon on November 21st. On November 21st the ballots will be tabulated automatically. The results will be announced via email and a newsletter announcing the election results will subsequently be distributed.
