Jill Bradbury, professor of English at Gallaudet University, will be stepping down as ASECS Treasurer when her term ends in June 2020.
Jill has done ASECS a tremendous service during her first two years as treasurer: she has taken the lead in reorganizing our finances and fund balances, so that we now have a clearer picture of our fiscal standing. ASECS’s financial position is strong, but many of our prize and travel funds are undercapitalized. Thanks to Jill’s work, we are well positioned to begin our 50+50 fundraising campaign. Beyond questions of finances, Jill has been a valued contributor to the Board on many other matters and has helped to shape policy on questions of accessibility at our conference.
ASECS invites members interested in applying for the position of treasurer to look over the job description here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Zj1BgD1ugPc3ADSMgHhcZoaexRX6eWQT/view and submit a letter of application. The Finance Committee will begin reviewing applications on October 1, 2019, with the goal of recommending a candidate to the Executive Board at the Annual Meeting in St. Louis in March 2020. For additional information about the Treasurer position, please contact Lisa Berglund, ASECS Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
