The TEI Consortium will shortly be holding its first-ever elections
for the TEI Council. The Council is the body responsible for guiding
the TEI's research, overseeing its workgroups, and reviewing their
results. It consists of twelve members, including the TEI editors who
serve on the council ex officio. Members of the Council serve for two
years. In order to assure a staggered turnover of Council members,
six positions on the Council will be open for election this year,
with the remaining four positions appointed to one-year terms and
open for election the following year.
Elections will also be held for two additional members of the TEI
Board of Directors. The Board is responsible for the TEI Consortium's
financial planning, governance, and strategic planning. Members of
this board serve for two years.
The nominating committee is now soliciting nominations for possible
candidates in these elections. Candidates need not be members of the
TEI Consortium, but they must indicate in writing that if elected
they are willing to serve. Please send all nominations to the chair
of the nominating committee, Julia Flanders
([log in to unmask]), no later than June 21, 2001.
Thank you very much for your assistance.
