Dear Colleagues,

The Nominating Committee seeks your input in creating a slate of candidates for this year's Western History Association election. Please submit nominations for: WHA President-elect, two Council members, and three members of the Nominating Committee.  

From the WHA Constitution and Bylaws:

The President presides at all meetings of the Western History Association and the Council during the President's year of service. The President makes appointments to committees and designates committee chairs. The President encourages the establishment of affiliated organization status between other appropriate organizations and the WHA.

The Council consists of the President, the President-elect, Executive Director, and seven elected members. The Council presents a complete report of actions and activities to the membership at the annual business meeting. Elected Council members serve three-year terms.

The Nominating Committee consists of five elected members each serving two-year terms. The Nominating Committee seeks suggestions from WHA members by February 15 each year and prepares the slate of candidates for President-elect, Council, and Nominating Committee.

Candidates for all elected positions need to be members in good standing.
