MESA Officer Nominations

Nominations are open for MESA officers for next year.  This is not an election, so you can access the nomination form multiple times.  If you think of someone after the fact, just fill out the form a second (or third, etc.) time.  

You many nominate yourself or any student for one or more of the following positions:  President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, or Co-Colloquium Chair.  To make multiple nominations for one position, you can enter a comma-separated list of nominees. A full description of the duties of each office is included in the nomination form.  Nominations will be accepted through Friday, April 24 at 5 p.m. and nominees will be notified the following week and given the opportunity to accept or decline their nominations.

Please note: there have been some changes to the officer board and the duties of each office – most notably, the Vice President will assume most of the duties of the NCTM representative (a position which has been dissolved). Again, a full description of the duties of each office is included in the nomination form.

Whether you are a current officer, former officer, or have never served – please consider running – don’t be shy about nominating yourself for one or more positions if you would like to serve!
