Seeking Nominations for ATTW Vice-President & At-Large Members

Every three years the ATTW membership elects a new vice president (who goes on to serve as president) and three members-at-large. As current ATTW Vice President, I am writing to solicit nominations for these positions (duties briefly outlined below). If you or someone you know would be a good candidate for any of these positions, please send Angela Haas your nomination(s) by December, 9, 2017 to ahaas@ilstu.edu.

The nominating committee will meet mid-December to finalize a slate of candidates.
