by User Not Found | Jun 29, 2012
The SAH Board of Directors and the 2013 SAH Nominating Committee seek your recommendations for new board members and for the 2013 class of SAH Fellows.
The Board of Directors seeks nominations for board members who would begin their terms in April 2013 and serve for three years. The Nominating Committee seeks nominations for next year's SAH Fellows, those individuals who have distinguished themselves by a lifetime of significant contributions to the field. 

Call For Nominations to the SAH Board

The 2013 SAH Nominating Committee seeks your recommendations for new SAH Board members who would begin their terms in April 2013 and serve for three years. The final slate of nominees should represent the diversity of the field of architectural history. Self-nominations are welcome as are nominations of emerging scholars and independent and non-affiliated historians of architectural history, landscape history and their related disciplines. Nominations of practitioners in architecture, historic preservation and related fields are also encouraged, as are nominations of people who chose architectural history as their avocation.

Please note that the SAH Board has adopted a policy to increase the diversity of our profession by expanding the racial and ethnic populations we represent, topics we address in our publications, programs and meetings, and promotion of these issues in the field of architectural history at large. To that end SAH would welcome the nomination of candidates who will add racial and ethnic diversity to the SAH Board.

Please email nominations to Pauline Saliga, SAH Executive Director, psaliga@sah.org. Nominations will be forwarded directly to the Chair of the Nominating Committee. Nominations should include the name, affiliation (if applicable), and contact information for the candidate, particularly telephone number. Also the nominator should provide a short explanation of the nominee's qualifications and why they feel the nominee should be considered for the SAH Board.

Call for Nominations for SAH Fellows

The Board of Directors of SAH seeks nominations for the class of 2013 SAH Fellows, those individuals who have distinguished themselves by a lifetime of significant contributions to the field. These contributions may include scholarship, service to SAH, or stewardship of the built environment.

Nominations may be made by any individual member of the Society in a letter or email addressed to SAH President Abigail Van Slyck which details a candidate’s scholarship, stewardship of the built environment, and/or service in support of the Society’s mission. Please email nominations to the SAH office at info@sah.org by October 1, 2012. Nominations will be screened by the Executive Committee and accepted nominations will then be submitted to the Board of Directors for final approval by a vote in its regular meeting in November. In exceptional circumstances, the Board of Directors may act on naming Fellows at other times of the year.

New Fellows of the Society will be announced by the President at the 2013 SAH Annual Conference in Buffalo, and a list of Fellows is published in every issue of JSAH
