        Subject: ACH 2020 elections results

Dear Humanist list subscribers,

The Association for Computers and the Humanities is pleased to announce
the results of our 2020 elections. As in previous years, the candidate
slate was exceptional, and we are grateful to so many digital humanities
practitioners for stepping up and being willing to work at the
organizational level.

The 2020-24 ACH Executive Council members are, in alphabetical order:
Caitlin Pollock, Brandon Walsh, and Jewon Woo.

In the Vice President/President-Elect race, an unprecedented and
exciting opportunity arose during the course of the election. We are
publishing details in a companion post to this one, but to summarize: at
the candidates' initiative and following discussion, the ACH Executive
Council has approved the appointment of two co-Vice Presidents in Quinn
Dombrowski and Roopika Risam. They will make decisions by consensus,
carry a single vote that must also be reached by consensus, and document
both their decisions and the decision making process both for
transparency and as a possible model for organizational co-leadership of
a major digital humanities organization.

A slightly longer version of this announcement is available on the ACH
website (http://ach.org/blog/2020/04/01/ach-2020-elections-results/).
Please also find there more on the ACH co-Vice President experiment

Thanks again to all who ran and all who voted. Onward!

Vika Zafrin, Secretary (she/her/hers)
