The Nominating Committee has submitted its initial slate for the 2023 Governing Board elections. The Nominating Committee consists of John Papadopoulos (Chair), Eric Cline, Lawrence Cripe, Julie Herzig Desnick, SeungJung Kim, and Charles Steinmetz.  

AIA members are encouraged to submit additional names for consideration before September 1, 2022. Please send suggestions to John Papadopoulos at jkp@humnet.ucla.edu and Samantha Austin at saustin@archaeological.org. With your nomination, please provide the nominee’s email address and a few sentences explaining why you think that person might be a good AIA Governing Board member. The Nominating Committee will consider all suggestions, but their role is to vet and select the requisite candidates for the ballot. If you speak to a potential candidate, please make it clear that your inquiry is informal, and does not guarantee a spot on the ballot or election to the position but do ascertain that they are willing to serve.
