The Nomination Sub-Committee of HNA seeks nominations and self-nominations for three board positions due to fall vacant in February 2022.
Board member responsibilities include attendance at two board meetings annually, to be held on Zoom in early February and early September, and participation in one or more subcommittees of the board. Board members are expected to attend the triennial conference of HNA (e.g., Amsterdam, 2-5 June 2022) 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 administration of HNA’s budget, overarching issues and future locations of its conference, disposition of its sponsored sessions at affiliated conferences, distribution of HNA Fellowships, management and layout of the organization’s websites, 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 of members as well as self-nominations from members of any background. As an international organization, HNA seeks board members who represent its diverse community both within and beyond the United States.
Please send a brief paragraph describing the person’s qualifications, along with an updated CV, to Marisa Bass (firstname.lastname@example.org), Stephanie Porras (email@example.com), and Freyda Spira (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday 18 October of this year.
Following the submission of names, the committee will assemble a slate of candidates, with polling for current members of HNA to run from 29 October until 12 November. Successful candidates will receive notification by 10 December. Installation of the new board members will occur at the February 2022 meeting of the board.
