AFS Elects New Executive Board and Nominating Committee Members

The following AFS members were elected to office in the voting that ended December 31:

Executive Board (2020-2022 terms):

Amanda Dargan (CityLore) 

Thomas A. DuBois (University of Wisconsin, Madison)

Ellen E. McHale (New York Folklore)

Nominating Committee (2020-2022 term):

Anika Wilson (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee)

244 members voted in the election, a slightly smaller number compared to those voting in previous non-Presidential elections (about 265-285).

The entire AFS Executive Board and staff extend deep thanks to all of the 2019 candidates, who deserve thanks for their willingness to serve the Society and field, and for their energetic participation in the nomination and election process. The same appreciation is due to the members of the 2019 Nominating Committee—and in particular to departing Committee chair Diane Goldstein—for their work to assemble this slate of excellent candidates.

Our gratitude also goes to outgoing President Dorothy Noyes, whose inclusive style of servant leadership leaves the Society strong. We also thank departing Executive Board members Wanda Addison, Olivia Cadaval, and Phyllis May-Machunda, each of whom will continue to serve on an ad-hoc Long-Range Plan Committee with the Executive Board. 

Incoming Nominating Committee chair Rachel Gonzalez-Martin, along with Committee members Lisa Rathje and Anika Wilson, will be taking up the 2020 nominating process—which will elect three Board members, a member of the Nominating Committee, and our next President-Elect—later this spring.
