Welcome to the online voting for this year's slate of board nominees to the AJS board.
This slate of six members was assembled by the AJS’s nomination committee from names submitted by the membership.
The slate was assembled with an eye to ensuring the diversity of the AJS leadership according to such measures as rank, gender, institution, career/professional status, geographic location, and more.
As in past years, slates can be voted either "up" or "down" in their entirety and votes cannot be placed for or against individual members on a slate. Voting will end on October 30. Results will be announced a week later.
We would like to thank Shaul Kelner (Vanderbilt University), chair of the Nominations Committee, and those who served on the committee: Leora Batnitzky (Princeton University), Jonathan Branfman, (Cornell University), Shira Kohn (Dalton School), Miriamne Krummel (University of Dayton), Geoffrey Levin (Emory University), Rafe Neis (University of Michigan)
Please vote YES or NO for the following slate of officers.
