Subject: RE: Spring 2021 FSU Election Cycle - need Ex Comm feedback

Thank you so much for this helpful feedback, Monique! We (the Elections Committee) agree with your suggestions, and are putting forward to the following motion for the Ex Comm’s consideration:

Motion: The FSU Elections Committee shall run all three open Tenured Track positions as part of the same election in Spring 2021. The third top vote getter will fill the vacant position with the March 2021 – May 2022 term, and the top two vote getters will fill the two standard two-year terms (June 2021 - May 2023). However, candidates will be allowed to indicate which position they prefer, which will be taken into consideration and voted upon if necessary by the Executive Committee after the votes from the membership are in. As part of the Spring 2021 election announcement, the membership will be notified that the candidate who fills the vacant Tenured Track position will have their term expire in May 2022. Elections for the June 2022 - May 2024 term will take place in March 2022, so if the candidate filling the vacant position wishes to stay in said position for a subsequent two-year term they will need to run for re-election in March 2022.

We’d like to call for an e-vote from Ex Comm on this. Could folks please vote by 12pm tomorrow (Friday, December 11)? If the motion is approved, the Elections Committee will then send out the election announcement and nomination forms, which will include the information detailed in the motion, to the FSU membership tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks so much!

FSU Elections Committee
