        Subject: ACH seeks nominations for Exec Council elections in 2019!

> From: The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) 

The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) invites 
nominations for the 2019 elections, in which our members will elect 
three Executive Council members for fourĀ­-year terms (2019-2023).

We seek candidates eager to support and advance the field of digital 
humanities (DH) by helping to lead the ACH. Please see our blog post 
for more information and instructions.

The election process does not require much effort: you share a short 
paragraph about who are, and another short paragraph about what kinds of 
work you might like to pursue as part of the ACH Exec. Our deadlines 
have been slightly extended: we ask that all nominations (names of folks 
who have agreed to run) are *submitted by 12/15*; *nominees have until 
12/31 to submit their materials* (a few sentences about who they are, 
and a few sentences about what you might be interested in working on or 
advocating for if elected).

Past examples of kinds of work candidates wanted to do include wanting 
to advocate for DH grad students, working toward DH being more 
inclusive, and working with ACH members to identify things we can do for 
them as their scholarly organization. Recent ACH Exec activities include 
discussions that led to starting an ACH 2019/etc. conference series, 
designing/debating a possible code of conduct for ACH event and virtual 
spaces, mentoring and supporting students and early-career folks (e.g. 
at DH2018 (http://ach.org/blog/2018/09/04/dh2018-conference/), and 
staking public positions (e.g. on DH conferences and the risks of 
crossing borders to attend them 
funding the NEH 
and condemning the 1/27/2017 executive order
