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 2019.
The VAF is administered by a volunteer board composed of dedicated professionals and scholars from diverse disciplines who live and work in all parts of the United States and Canada. The Board meets twice a year, once during 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 Treasurer to start in June 2019. Candidates for the position of Treasurer should be conscientious, detail-oriented, and have a basic familiarity with Excel. They need not have professional finance or banking experience. The Treasurer has a strong voice in influencing the administration and direction of the VAF.
Nominations should be sent to Jennifer Cousineau at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1, 2018. 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
