NASPA API Knowledge Community Blog




Dear Asian Pacific Islander Knowledge Community Members,

Are you seeking to get more involved with other NASPA API members? We are soliciting nominations of NASPA members to serve as the next Chair or Co-Chairs, for NASPA’s API Knowledge Community. The KC Chair or Co-chairs are elected for a three-year term: one year (March, 2014-March 2015) as Chairs-Elect and two years (March 2014-March 2017) as KC Chair or Co-chairs. We invite you to view the full Knowledge Community Chair/Co-chair position description.

Any NASPA member may nominate another member for the role of Chair-Elect or Co-Chair-Elect. Self-nominations are also accepted. Nominees will be evaluated on the basis of (1) regional and/or national visibility in the Knowledge Community, (2) participation in the Knowledge Community at the regional or national level, and (3) other contributions to the profession that relate to the mission of the Knowledge Community.

If you wish to nominate someone, or you are interested in serving in this position (we strongly encourage Co-chairs), please submit your nomination(s) by email to Belinda Vea at no later than October 28, 2013 (NEW DATE! EXTENDED DEADLINE!).

A nomination must include the following:

· Nominee(s) name, NASPA Member ID, title, institution, mobile phone number, and email address.
· Digital photograph (A standard “professional” headshot is most appropriate. If a color photograph is submitted, it will appear on the ballot in color; if a black-and-white photograph is submitted, it will appear on the ballot in black-and-white.)
· Current resume or C.V. devoid of personal information (e.g., home address, home phone number) and with any references removed. The resume or C.V. must be submitted in PDF format.
· Candidate statement (500-700 words, MS Word format) that clearly and concisely articulates the nominee’s philosophy, purpose, and/or goals. The candidate statement may include paragraph breaks where needed. If nominees are running as co-chairs, they should submit a single, joint candidate statement, which conforms to the 500-700 word requirement.

PLEASE NOTE: These materials will NOT be edited by the NASPA Office, so it is essential that candidates carefully prepare and review their materials before submitting them.

The nominations committee will review nominees’ materials, and then submit a final list of candidates to the NASPA Office for the official ballot. The NASPA Office will prepare the official ballot for distribution to all Knowledge Community members. Ballots will be mailed electronically to all KC members in January, 2014, and elections will be open for 30 days.

If you have any questions, please contact Belinda Vea ( with the KC nominating committee. Thank you for your interest and participation.
