Call for Nominations
Deadline: May 10, 2017
The ACSA Board of Directors invites nominations and self-nominations from faculty at full and candidate member schools to participate in 2017-2018 ACSA committees, task forces, and other activities.
Volunteer appointments are initiated by the 2017-2018 ACSA president, Francisco Rodriguez-Suarez. Appointments are for one year beginning July 1, 2017, and are eligible for renewal thereafter. Individuals who responded to last year's call will remain in the pool of candidates, but may also send revised information.
Committees will work primarily through conference calls during the academic year. A funded meeting is planned for committees in fall 2017, and committees may convene at the 2017 Administrators Conference and 2018 Annual Meeting.
Interested participants are asked to submit a 1 page cover letter identifying areas of interest related to ACSA’s committees and strategic plan, as well as a 2 page (maximum) curriculum vitae. The deadline for nominations and self-nominations is May 10, 2017. Submit materials to Michelle Sturges, ACSA programs and membership coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Volunteer Opportunities
This year ACSA implemented three new Program Committees designed to involve members and carry out the goals of the strategic plan (see their general charges below). Among the products of these committees is the draft of the White Paper on Tenure and Promotion. ACSA seeks to identify additional members to participate in these committees as well as other peer review bodies for ACSA conferences, competitions, and awards.
More information about ACSA’s governance plan and strategic plan are available on the ACSA website.
The three Program Committees are charged as follows:
- The Research & Scholarship Committee is charged with leading ACSA’s efforts to support faculty in scholarly endeavors; monitoring and assessing peer-review and recognition programs; and recommending actions to advocate for architectural scholarship. The committee is responsible for policies guiding scholarly conferences, journals, and awards.
- The Education Committee is charged with leading ACSA’s efforts to improve the effectiveness of architectural education through best practices and overseeing programs to cultivate and disseminate these best practices. The committee is responsible for policies guiding the ACSA Teachers Seminar, workshops, and webinars.
- The Leadership Committee is charged with leading ACSA’s efforts to support the strategic development of architecture programs; identifying and disseminating best-practice models of program leadership and administration; and overseeing ACSA’s efforts to promote awareness of architectural education. The committee is responsible for policies guiding the Administrators Conference, student recruitment efforts, and data collection and analysis.
