The nominating committee of the Vernacular Architecture Forum (VAF) is seeking nominations for individuals to serve as members of the organization’s Board of Directors. Board members serve three-year terms. Individuals nominated this year, and subsequently elected, will begin service in June 2017.
The VAF is administered by a volunteer board composed of dedicated professionals, students, and scholars from diverse disciplines who live and work in all parts of the United States and Canada. Nominations are sought for energetic, insightful, and responsible individuals at all stages of their careers. The Board meets twice a year; once immediately preceding our Annual Conference in the Spring and again in the Fall. Board members are expected to attend these day-long meetings and participate in committee work throughout the year.
The committee also seeks nominations for the position of First Vice President to start in June 2017. The First Vice President assists the President, chairs the forum’s Nominating Committee, works with Chapters, and oversees the day of papers at the annual conference. Candidates for the position of First Vice President should be familiar with the organization’s disparate programs and possess significant leadership skills.
Nominees must be members of the Vernacular Architecture Forum. Please include a short letter (not exceeding one page) indicating the position for which the person is being nominated and describing their qualifications as well as a short vita/resume (not exceeding two pages). Self-nominations are actively encouraged.
Nominations should be sent to William D. Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably before October 1, 2016.
