In August the Federation’s 2016 Nominating Committee sent council directors a message announcing the slate of four candidates for the Federation board to be brought to the membership for a vote at the Annual Business Meeting in November. This year’s candidates were selected by the committee to fill positions that will be left vacant by retiring board members Rick Ardinger (ID), Jarett Fields (WI), Julie Mulvihill (KS), and Willis Whichard (NC). We are deeply indebted to the four departing members, who have made invaluable contributions to the Federation during their years on the board.
Candidates for 2016 include the following:
Steven Seibert, founder of the Seibert Law Firm and former chair of the Florida Humanities Council
Briann Greenfield, executive director of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities
Joan Abrams, nonprofit projects consultant and former chair of the board of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities
Armand DeKeyser, executive director of the Alabama Humanities Foundation
Federation board members serve a four-year term.
