2021 Call for AFS Board Nominations

AFS News, Elections

The American Folklore Society acknowledges the critical role that diverse leadership will play in our future success. This year, in collaboration with the AFS Executive Board, the Nominating Committee seeks candidates in two areas:

  • Nominating Committee (1 open position)
  • Executive Board (3 open positions)

Nominations should prioritize diversity, including People of Color, queer-identifying, and people with disabilities, as well as candidates with innovative approaches to folklore work. The Nominating Committee encourages all AFS members to recommend strong candidates for any of these offices by sending an email to Lisa Rathje, Nominating Committee chair: [email protected] by June 15, 2021.
