Appointments Committee

The Appointments Committee assists the vice-president/president-elect with the appointment process by identifying a pool of potential candidates for appointed positions to committees, boards,  and tasks forces, and to official SAA representative positions. The Committee uses the volunteer self-nomination form, for those members who wish to be considered for appointments, and consults with current appointed group chairs for possible candidates. The Committee surveys the overall list of current and potential appointments to achieve quality, balance, and diversity of appointees both overall and within each unit. At the same time, the committee maintains an openness to appointing new people, especially through the early-career member program.
