Catharine Maria Sedgwick Society – Call for nominations

Call for Nominees: Upcoming Elections – Nominations due by Friday, 11 Nov. 2022 

We will be holding elections this November for all Executive Board member positions, and we strongly encourage self-nominations. Participation on the Sedgwick Society board is not only personally rewarding, but also an excellent way to expand your service to the profession at the national level and to develop contacts and build relationships with other scholars and educators in the field. For this election cycle, Ellen Foster has agreed to serve as the Sedgwick Society election coordinator. People who are interested in serving as officers must send their candidate statements to Ellen via email——by Friday, 11 Nov. 2022. Candidate statements will be distributed with a link to a ballot. Once the link is distributed, voting will remain open until Friday, 9 Dec. 2022. 

All officers are elected to three-year terms by simple majority of the members who vote via the official ballot. If you have questions or would like more information about a particular position, or about serving on the Executive Board more generally, we encourage you to contact any of the current executive board members ( The officer team consists of the following positions, and you can view descriptions on our website:
