Dear RUSA Members,
RUSA will be holding a special election this summer to elect a new RUSA Vice President/President-Elect to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of incoming President Liane Taylor, and my move subsequently from Vice President to President. The nominating committee, chaired by RUSA past president Kathleen Kern, is working hard to identify and vet potential nominees for this election. In addition to the nominees, members may also petition to run for election. Please see the instructions here to create an e-petition; a template for a paper petition is here. 30 signatures of current RUSA members must be received by July 28, 2015, 5pm CT for a petition to be valid. The election is scheduled for early August; you’ll receive another message with more information before that time. If you have any questions, please direct them to RUSA Executive Director Susan Hornung, shornung at ala.org.
