Committee members will serve a one-year term and participate in regular committee meetings approximately four to six times during the year.

The ARCUS Membership Committee is a standing committee established by the ARCUS Board of Directors and charged with planning and supporting ARCUS member engagement activities, including planning and hosting the ARCUS Annual Meeting. Members of the sub-committee involved in ARCUS Annual Meeting planning may meet more regularly in advance of this virtual fall event.

Self-nominations from all disciplines, career levels, and research backgrounds are welcome. However, as this group’s function is to support ARCUS member engagement, ARCUS is primarily looking for nominations from ARCUS individual members, institutional member representatives, or institutional representative designees. Serving members of this committee must be employed by an ARCUS member organization and/or be willing to join ARCUS as an individual member. You do not need to currently be an ARCUS individual member to submit a nomination or self-nomination.

Nominations should be sent to Brit Myers at and include:

  • Name, affiliation, and contact information;
  • Resume, curriculum vitae, or link to a professional webpage;
  • A brief statement explaining why you or your nominee would like to be part of the committee and what you/they would like to contribute; and
  • For those nominating a colleague, confirmation that the nominee is aware of the nomination and is willing to serve on the committee.

Nomination deadline: 15 February 2023
