NARSC Nominations

The North American Regional Science Council (NARSC) is seeking nominations for the following positions:

President: The President will be elected for a one-year term (starting January 1 following election). The President should be a distinguished regional scientist or other distinguished scholar. The President’s principal duty is to deliver the Presidential Address at the Meetings. The President also serves on the Honors Committee, as an additional voting Councilor during the term of office as President, and performs other duties as needed by the organization.

Councilor-at-large (non-student, two positions): Councilors-at-large will be voting members of the NASRC Council. These are elected positions, with a three-year term. The Council and its members are responsible for accepting new member organizations, electing officers, matters involving the Annual North American Meetings of the RSAI, etc.

Student representative (student only, one position): The student representative will be a voting member of the NARSC Council. This is an elected position, with a two-year term. The student representative is expected to serve for two full years, even if graduation occurs before the end of the term.
