Board of Directors Election
As an ASLO member, you have the opportunity and responsibility to cast your ballot for your representatives on the ASLO Board of Directors. ASLO functions as a participatory democracy that is only truly functional if we get your active participation. The slate of candidates was selected by the Nominations Committee relying heavily on your suggestions.
The terms of the ASLO Board of Directors are staggered to ensure that experienced board members are always present. Elections are conducted by electronic ballot each spring. In Spring 2021, you will select three Members-at-large, and one Student Board Member. In addition, ASLO Secretary Dianne Greenfield is running unopposed for re-election to a second term.
The ASLO Secretary maintains ASLO records including the minutes of membership and Board of Directors meetings, and records votes and decisions made at those meetings. The Secretary serves a three-year term and may run unopposed for re-election.
Members at Large (3)
Members at Large represent the interests of the general membership on the Board. As Board members they help set ASLO policy and determine how ASLO resources will be obtained and spent. Members at Large serve three-year terms, and can be re-elected for an additional term.
Student Board Member (1)
Two Student Board Members sit on the ASLO Board, and bring the student perspective to the Board as well as sharing the responsibilities of all Board members. They may chair or serve on ad hoc and standing committees, or handle special projects. Student Board members complete their term of office even if they graduate before their term is completed. Student Board Members serve for a three year term.
