The ASC devotes its small budget, based in part on dues received from AAUP members, to supporting state conferences. Positions for ASC officers, who help to decide how to allocate the budget, are open for the 2018 election.
Serving on the ASC is a great way to learn more about the AAUP and its work throughout the country. Some experience at the state level is desirable, but any member in good standing can be nominated and serve.
Candidates for ASC positions should be able to attend at least four in-person and telephone meetings throughout the year, one of which is at the national conference. The AAUP reimburses travel expenses for the in-person meetings.
There are three open positions on the ASC Executive Committee: Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary. Nominations for Chair closed on December 15, and nominations for Vice Chair and Secretary are due by January 19, 2018. Please consider nominating yourself or someone you know for one of these positions. You can find information about the ASC Executive Committee election at https://www.aaup.org/ASC-2018.
