[haw-info] call for candidates for the HAW Steering Committee

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,
In a few weeks we will conduct e-mail voting for members of the HAW Steering Committee.  The Steering Committee, elected once a year, makes decisions for HAW in between the annual meetings at the AHA.  Aside from one face-to-face meeting in the summer, the SC conducts business through e-mail and occasional conference calls. 
Eligibility to run, and to vote, will depend on being a member of HAW at the time of the actual election.  (See below.)
If you would like to run (and we encourage you to consider it) or if you would like to nominate someone, let us know. 
If you are nominating yourself, please send a brief description, using the template at the end of this message, by January 25 to either of the current co-chairs (addresses are below).  If you are nominating someone else, please send us the name and e-mail address sooner so we can contact them and see if they are willing.
If you have any questions, feel free to write to either of us with questions.
Thank you,
Jim O'Brien (jimobrien48@gmail.com) and Marc Becker (marc@yachana.org)
current co-chairs of the HAW Steering Committee
* Last spring HAW (by a referendum vote of 196-14) adopted a new defining statement, with the specification that membership would now be open to anyone who is in "substantial agreement" (self-defined) with the statement and wants to be considered a member.  The statement, and an on-line form for joining, are on the HAW home page at http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/statement.html.  A list of people currently registered as members is at http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/aha10/members.html.
