Forum Executive Committee Appointee
On behalf of the Chaucer Forum Executive Committee, I would like to invite you to submit nominations for the new appointee to the forum EC. The term will be five years, from January 2024 to January 2029.
Only current MLA members are eligible for appointment. Candidates cannot already be serving on another forum executive committee (unless their term ends in January of 2023) and cannot have served on the executive committee to which they are being appointed after 2016. Before becoming recognized committee members, appointees must agree to accept their appointments.
Please submit nominations to Wan-Chuan Kao (email@example.com) and Carissa Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 23.
Next, please remember to vote in the 2022 MLA elections, especially for the new delegate of the Chaucer Forum to the Delegate Assembly. A big thank you to Randy Schiff and Myra Seaman, who have generously agreed to stand for election. The deadline to submit ballots is December 10.
