The Association for Computers and the Humanities invites nominations for this year's elections. We are electing a president, vice-president, and three Executive Council members, and seek candidates for all these offices who want to advance the field of digital humanities by helping to run the ACH.
Together with other officers, these are the people who form the ACH's policies, decide how the ACH will spend its funds, and oversee its activities. They meet for an annual council meeting at the Digital Humanities conference every year, and hold discussions during the rest of the year by email and occasional phone conferences.
Candidates must be (or be willing to become) members of the ACH and must commit to attending the council meetings at the Digital Humanities conference. The president and vice-president serve two-year terms; council members serve four-year terms. Candidates are expected to be active members of the digital humanities community. But these are not roles reserved to those in very senior positions: graduate students have often served on the council, and commitment to the organization and to the field have usually counted for more with the membership than job titles.
Nominations should be sent to ach-nominations@
