Dear CEAL Members,
I am excited to announce the upcoming CEAL election! This year we will elect representatives to fill the following important positions:
- Vice President/President Elect (2012-2014)
- Secretary (2012-2015)
- Treasurer (2012-2015)
- Members at Large (two positions) (2012-2015)
We are fortunate to have a slate of superb candidates this year. I thank the candidates for their willingness to stand for election. As you consider the candidates’ qualifications for their respective duties, you may wish to consult the CEAL Bylaws at: http://www.eastasianlib.org/CEAL/Bylaws/CEALbylaws.pdf
On Monday, February 13th , current CEAL members (defined as AAS members who pay CEAL membership dues) will receive an e-mail from Rob Britt, Technology Committee Chair, transmitting CEAL Secretary Beth Katzoff’s letter with a link to the online ballot. While membership can be renewed at any time, please note that the voters list has already been finalized for this election. If you believe that you are a current CEAL member and did not receive the online ballot on Monday, February 13th, please send a message to both Ai-lin Yang, Treasurer <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Hikaru Nakano, Membership Committee Chair <email@example.com>. The last day to cast your vote will be Monday, March 5th.
It may not be obvious, but preparing for an election takes a great deal of hard work by many people behind the scenes. I congratulate and thank the Election Committee (Ying Zhang, Chair, Setsuko Noguchi, Mikyung Kang, and ex-officio members, Peter Zhou, Beth Katzoff, and myself) for successfully recruiting this excellent slate of candidates. As usual, Ai-lin Yang and Hikaru Nakano also worked hard verifying and updating the membership records, as did Rob Britt, who prepared the online ballot and the voters list.
Thank you in advance for your participation in the election! The election results will be announced at the Plenary I (Business) meeting on March 14th at the Toronto, Canada AAS / CEAL conference, and after the conference, on Eastlib and the CEAL News blog (http://cealnews.blogspot.com/).
