Elected Positions. ASA members are invited to suggest names for consideration for elected offices, including: President-Elect, Vice President-Elect, Council Members-at-Large, Committee on Committees, Nominating Committee, and Publications Committee.

Appointed Positions. ASA members are invited to suggest names for consideration for appointment to ASA committees, including the Annual Meeting Travel Fund Award Selection Committee, Awards Committee, Committee on Professional Ethics, Sections Committee, and the ASA award selection committees.

When submitting a suggestion for either an elected or appointed position, consider how well the person meets the standards of professional ethics as articulated in the ASA Code of Ethics (e.g., harassment, plagiarism, discrimination). Submit suggestions by May 1 to email@example.com.
