The AAG Health and Medical Geography Specialty Group (HMGSG) is looking for nominations to fill upcoming vacancies. This year we are seeking nominations for the following positions and will hold elections during the 2018 AAG annual meeting in New Orleans:
– 1 Vice-Chair
– 1 At-Large Board Member
– 1 Graduate Student Board Member
The Vice-Chair serves a one-year term and transitions to Chair in the second year. The At-Large and Student board members each serve a two-year term.
All HMGSG members are eligible and encouraged to nominate candidates (HMGSG members only) for these positions. Self-nominations are accepted. Before your nomination, please contact the nominee to assure they are willing and available to serve if elected. Attendance at the AAG meeting by nominees is not required but is encouraged.
If you are interested in serving in any of these positions, please send an email to Kirsten Beyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) indicating the position of interest and a half-page bio for circulation to the membership at the HMGSG business meeting. The deadline for submissions is April 2, 2018. Please use “Nomination for HMGSG positions” as the subject of your email. Your half-page bio-sketch should include your full name, title and degree, institution, and research and teaching interests. Nominees will be invited to introduce themselves to the membership at the HMGSG Business Meeting directly prior to the election. Nominations and introductions can also be made in person at the meeting directly prior to the election, but bios for these candidates will not be circulated.
Thank you for your support of the HMGSG Specialty Group.
