The Alliance of Digital Humanities (ADHO) is looking to appoint a chair of its
Infrastructure Committee (ISC) for a three-year term. The ISC is responsible for
creating and maintaining the shared infrastructure that ADHO and its Constituent
Organizations use.

If you or someone you know would be perfect for this role, you are kindly
invited to make a nomination – preferably having already asked permission from
the person you have in mind. Please send your nomination to
web@digitalhumanities.org, stating your organization membership, and your
nomination will be forwarded to the relevant Constituent Organization. Self-
nominations are welcome.

The deadline for stating your interest or for nominating someone else is 2 July
2019. A short summary of your expertise and a brief statement of your motivation
will be helpful as well. The Steering Committee will gather all nominations for
