Membership

Criteria

The Nominating Committee is responsible for reviewing and recommending nominees to the full membership. Any active member of the Society may nominate an individual to membership by providing a brief written summary of the nominee’s education and career accomplishments, with special emphasis on her or his work in the research, teaching, writing, and/or public presentation of North Carolina history. The name of at least one additional Society member as co-nominator should be included with the nomination.

Each new member elected shall be sent a letter of invitation to membership by the President. The nominee must indicate by letter or email if he or she accepts membership. Failure to respond within a year shall be considered a declination of the invitation. A nominee who fails to respond or who declines the invitation to membership may, however, be re-nominated when future membership vacancies occur.

Deadline: Nominations may be submitted at any time during the year, even when there are no membership vacancies.
