    Dear colleagues, the Cuban and Cuban Diasporic Forum is seeking self-nominations from our members. If you are interested in getting more involved, please write to any of the members of the executive committee (group admins) or directly to Paloma Duong ( before January 21, 2022. There are two ways to participate:

    • Would you like to serve in the Forum Executive Committee in the near future?
    • Would you like to participate in the upcoming election as Delegate to the Assembly? (Description below)

    The person elected as DELEGATE in 2022 will serve in the assembly from 10 January 2023 through the close of the January 2026 convention (a term of three convention years). Please see the document, linked below, for an outline of the responsibilities of delegates.

    Candidates must be at different institutions and meet the following criteria to be nominated:

    – Must have been an MLA member between 15 January 2021 and 14 January 2022, unless the nominee is a student, in which case we only require that they be a current member.
    – Cannot already be serving on the Delegate Assembly, unless their term ends in 2023
    – Cannot already have served two successive terms on the Delegate Assembly

    A delegate’s main responsibility is to attend meetings of the assembly, which are held during the MLA Annual Convention. Since an elected delegate who cannot attend may not be represented by proxy, the forum’s delegate should be willing and able to attend the meetings of the assembly in 2024, 2025, and 2026. (The January 2024 convention will be held in Philadelphia; the January 2025 convention will be held in New Orleans; the January 2026 convention will be held in Toronto).
