BASAS Council Elections 2019


BASAS is seeking nominations to fill vacancies for a new Treasurer and four non-reserved seats on the BASAS Council.

Through this election, members of the Association will decide who should fill them on 1st November 2019.

Council members typically take part in the following activities: revenue generation ideas and financial reporting, conference and annual lecture organisation, work on the website and newsletters, potential collaborations with other organisations, membership growth, journal distribution growth and encouraging the submission of high quality papers, and society governance. Former Council members have gone on to take up senior academic posts, head departments, and become journal editors.

For information about specific roles please see media/file/Job%20specifications%20for%20vacant%20posistions%20on%20Council.pdf

Members who have previously taken part in a BASAS conference are highly encouraged to apply. Members who have experience in working with websites, social media and online technologies, and those who wish to support the initiatives and activities led by the GEC Members of Council are also encouraged to apply.

Each new Council member is expected to serve a three year term from 1st November 2019 to 31st October 2022.

Nominations

Any non-BASAS member may nominate a member by i) arranging for written consent by the nominee to be sent to the current Council, and ii) providing secondment of the said nomination from two other BASAS members.
