Review Candidates for 2019 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. 

Each division that is not already represented by an elected representative may put forth a candidate. Please visit the NVC Committee directory if you wish to see the current members.  Five divisions have chosen to put forth candidates this year. Two individuals will be elected to a three-year term starting October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2022.

Please use the links below to view the candidate information.  Members of the CUR General Council should expect to receive an email with the ballot to vote in early September.
