The Nomination Sub-Committee of HNA seeks nominations and self-nominations for four board positions due to change over in February 2024. Board member responsibilities include attendance at two board meetings annually, generally held over Zoom in February and September, and participation in one or more subcommittees of the board. Board members are expected to attend the triennial conference of HNA (e.g., London and Cambridge 10-13 July 2024) and encouraged to attend HNA-sponsored sessions and receptions at the annual conferences of the College Art Association and the Renaissance Society of America. Board members discuss and vote on the administration of HNA’s budget, overarching issues of the organization’s activities, future locations of its conference, and disposition of its sponsored sessions at affiliated conferences; based on involvement in subcommittees, board members may participate in distribution of HNA Fellowships, administration of the HNA Mentorship Program, management of the organization’s websites, liaising with other professional organizations like RSA, and other issues and events as pertinent. In addition to consulting with leadership of the Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art (JHNA), they are charged with upholding the bylaws of the organization and, when circumstances dictate, considering any necessary amendments. Departing board members oversee the election process for new board members. The term of office for all board positions is four years.
HNA’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion extends to its board. We encourage nominations and self-nominations of members of any background. As an international organization, HNA seeks board members who represent its diverse community both within and beyond the United States. Graduate student nominations are also encouraged.
Please send a brief paragraph describing the person’s qualifications, along with an updated CV, to Lara Yeager-Crasselt (firstname.lastname@example.org), Jun Nakamura (email@example.com), Ed Wouk (Edward.firstname.lastname@example.org), and Olenka Horbatsch (email@example.com) by Friday, December 22, 2023.
Following the submission of names, the committee will assemble a slate of candidates, with polling for current members of HNA to run from 5 January through 15 January 2024. Successful candidates will receive notification by 31 January. Installation of the new board members will occur at the February 2024 meeting of the board.
