Candidates for 2021 NVC Elections


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. 

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 September 1, 2021, through August 31, 2024.

Members of the CUR General Council are able to vote for one individual until July 16, 2021. 

Each candidate was asked the following questions:

  • What is your leadership experience in CUR and outside of CUR?
  • Why are you interested in serving on the NVC and how does your past experience with CUR or other organizations support your role on NVC?
  • How will you represent and advance CUR-wide interests? (Please reference the CUR mission and strategic plan.)


Please select the below candidates to read their answers before casting your vote.
