Native American and Indigenous Studies Association

The premiere international & interdisciplinary professional organization for scholars, graduate students, independent researchers, and community members interested in all aspects of Indigenous Studies.


Council has acted to address what we believe is a structural problem in the current terms for certain officers in the association.

The terms for Secretary and Treasurer are three years each. Up until now, those terms have run concurrently, such that every three years we have a new Secretary and Treasurer at the same time. This fact means that, for that year, three of the association’s five officers are new to Council (including the President-elect), and the President for that year has the difficulties created by there being two people who are unfamiliar with the vital administrative work that their positions require. Having a new Secretary and Treasurer at the same time, then, needlessly creates disruption in the life of the association.

For these reasons, Council has decided to stagger the terms of Secretary and Treasurer by a year. In order to do so, we have added the following section to the NAISA By-laws:

“After consultation with Nominations Committee, Council has reached the conclusion that the terms for Secretary and Treasurer should be staggered by a year, so as better to maintain continuity and facilitate the transition among officers. In order to do so, there will be a one-time extension of the current Secretary's term for one additional year to run from the end of the annual meeting in 2015 to the end of the annual meeting in 2016.”

As a result of this change, there will not be an election for Secretary this year. Instead, David Chang has quite generously agreed to stay on in the position for an additional year so that we can redress this structural issue.

Sincerely,
NAISA Council
