Dear AMCA members, | AMCA | Association for Modern + Contemporary Art of the Arab World, Iran + Turkey

Dear AMCA members,

Dear AMCA members,

We are happy to announce that nominations for AMCA’s Board Member positions of President-elect, Secretary, and Treasurer are currently being accepted. Now that AMCA can boast four years of continuous programming including panels at CAA and MESA as well as our own dedicated conference last year (and plans for a second AMCA conference underway for 2012), an expanding membership, and increasing recognition from academic and curatorial circles, it is time for you to get involved. Let’s keep our momentum going.

Nominations should be submitted via email by November 20 2011 to: info@amcainternational.org. All nominations must be accompanied by a 300-500 word bio and brief CV. Self-nominations are accepted. Please also note that as per AMCA by-laws, only active members (membership dues up to date) may serve as board members.

Candidates will be announced at AMCA’s annual Members Meeting to be held on December 1 2011 at 7pm. Following the December 1 2011 Members Meeting, candidates’ bios will be circulated to all AMCA members. Voting will be held via email ballot. All active members shall have 1 vote per office. Polls will close Jan 20 2012. Successful candidates will be announced on Feb. 15 2012 and assume office at the close of the 2012 Members Meeting (to be held in conjunction with the annual MESA Meeting, held in late Autumn 2012, as per AMCA’s bylaws).

For a full listing of responsibilities for each Board position, please visit AMCA’s by-laws, posted in full at: <www.amcainternational.org <http://www.amcainternational.org> . Current holders of the positions are also happy to answer questions about responsibilities associated with each post. Please feel free to email them directly.
