Nominations for 2004 ASEE Elections


Presented on the following pages are candidates for offices in the 2004 ASEE elections. These candidates were selected by the 2003 ASEE nominating committee chaired by Gerald S. Jakubowski. The nominations were received by the executive director as required by ASEE's constitution. The nominating committee believes that the candidates offered here are eminently qualified and deserve close consideration by the membership.

Additional nominations of eligible candidates may be made by petitions of at least 200 individual members. Nominees so proposed must indicate a willingness to serve before their names are placed on the ballot. Such petitions and agreements must be presented to the executive director no later than Jan. 1, 2004.

Write-in votes will be accepted for all offices. In all cases, a simple plurality constitutes election. The official ballot, which will be provided to each individual member by March 1, must be returned by March 31.

Editor's note: Due to space limitations and in the interest of fairness to all candidates, the biographies and statements may have been edited to fit the allotted space. For the uncut biographies and statements, please visit our Web site at www.asee.org/welcome.
