Call for Nominations for 2022 Elections

President, Secretary, At-Large Position to be elected

We are now seeking nominations for the 2022 Ohio Conference AAUP Board of Trustees’ elections. In accordance with our governing policies, nominees must have been a member for at least two years and current on dues to be eligible for a trustee position.

Nominations should be sent to Sara Kilpatrick, Executive Director, at no later than January 15, 2022

Below are the positions to be elected directly through the Conference elections next year. Those who are elected will serve a two-year term beginning September 1, 2022.

-At-Large Member: Private Institution (nominee must be a member at a private institution)

The President shall preside at Conference meetings and, with the approval of the Trustees, arrange for the Conference meetings and appoint Chairs of the standing committees; shall execute such matters as are referred to him or her at Conference meetings and by the Trustees; and, in consultation with the Trustees, shall take such other actions as are judged necessary to carry out the objectives of the Ohio Conference, and shall report at the next Conference meeting any actions taken by the Trustees during the time between meetings.

The Secretary shall keep the Ohio Conference records, including minutes of meetings of the trustees and of the Conference.

The At-Large position for private institutions is supposed to provide the Conference board with a perspective from private institution faculty and to communicate with private institution chapters to see how the Conference can best serve them.

The Conference Board has four Saturday meetings each academic year that trustees are expected to attend, one of which is the Annual Meeting. Traditionally, these have been in-person meetings, but in the last two years have been virtual on account of the pandemic. Trustees also oversee the executive director and provide direction for the organization.

Serving on the Board of Trustees is a rewarding way to engage in statewide AAUP issues and state government advocacy. If you have questions, or would like to submit a nomination, contact Sara Kilpatrick at
