If you wish to nominate a potential new member in advance of the fall meeting, please submit their information through our new online form (which will forward it to Nominating Committee Chair Jerry Gershenhorn). For a nomination to be considered by the Nominating Committee for the October 14 meeting, please submit the nomination at least six weeks in advance (by September 2). A simple list of current members may be found here. We will be working in the coming months to improve and update the membership list and can make a full list with contact information available to any member who requests it at any time.
According to the HSNC Bylaws, “Any Society member with current Active status may nominate an individual to membership. A nomination should be in the form of 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. Nominations should be submitted to the Chair of the Nominating Committee and may be transmitted either on paper or via electronic communication. Nominations may be submitted at any time during the year, even when there are no membership vacancies.”
