Call for Nominees to the NVC


CUR's Constitution & By-Laws encourages contested elections for CUR officers.  One element of this process involves a Nominations Vetting Committee (NVC) to review nominations, approve candidates, and develop a slate of candidates for each open officer position.  In addition, the NVC will play an important role in vetting candidates for Council and General Representatives to the Executive Board.  The NVC will consist of the Nominations Chair, the Immediate Past-President, and five additional members elected by the General Council.  The five additional members serve staggered three-year terms.  Given CUR's commitment to diversity, we encourage consideration of individual, disciplinary, and institutional diversity on the Nominations Vetting Committee in order to bring a broad perspective to review officer candidates. 

Each division that is not already represented by an elected representative may put forth a single candidate, nominated by the division chair. Please visit the NVC Committee directory if you wish to see the current members.  One individual will be elected to a three-year term starting August 1, 2021.

Nominees will be required to submit the following materials:

  • Name, Email, Organization
  • 2-page C.V.
  • What is your leadership experience in CUR and outside of CUR?
  • Why are you interested in serving on the NVC and how does your experience with CUR and or other organizations support your candidacy to NVC?
  • How will you represent and advance CUR-wide interests (please reference the CUR Mission and Strategic Plan)?
