2019 RAO Election Call for Nominations

 Hello RAO Members!

Are you looking to shape the future direction and activities of the Reference, Access, and Outreach Section? Put yourself forward for an elected RAO position!


The RAO Nominations and Elections Committee is seeking nominations to fill vacancies on the RAO Steering Committee; we invite you to volunteer yourself or someone you know as a candidate! We value a variety of ideas and perspectives in RAO, and we encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds, institutions, professional settings, and experience. Students and new professionals should feel welcome to run for these leadership roles.


The Nominating Committee seeks nominations from all current RAO members for these vacancies:


· Two Steering Committee Members, for two-year terms.


· One Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect, for a three-year term. (The successful candidate will serve one year as Vice-Chair, will automatically become the RAO Chair for the following year, and will serve one year as Immediate Past Chair.)


The only requirement for candidacy is that nominees must be members of the RAO Section.


To nominate yourself or someone else for a leadership role in RAO, please fill out this Nomination Form. Those who are nominating themselves will be asked to submit their candidate statements and biographical information. Nominations should be received by Friday, May 17, 2019.


If you would like additional information about these leadership roles or the election process, please contact the 2019 RAO Nominating Committee. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
