SMA Elections 2015

Call for Candidates

Candidates are invited for the following positions on the Society for Music Analysis Committee:

  • President;
  • Information Officer;
  • Student Representative.

The elected candidates will work with the rest of the SMA Committee to represent and guide our activities over the next few years.

The President shall carry out the policies of the Executive Committee and shall chair all meetings of the Society and the Executive Committee. The President shall discharge such other duties as are customarily associated with the office, including attendance at meetings of the Editorial Board of the journal Music Analysis.

The Information Officer shall prepare the Society’s Newsletter and maintain the Society’s website; prepare publicity for the Society’s events; and take such additional steps as deemed necessary by the Executive Committee to publicise the Society’s work.

There are two SMA student representatives, and one of these posts is now due for election. Student Representatives help the committee as a whole discover what sort of workshops, seminars, conferences etc. are of interest to the next generation of scholars, and take a lead role in organising our programme of student events.

Members of the Executive Committee are expected to attend committee meetings, which take place once or twice a year, usually in conjunction with SMA events. There is also an Annual General Meeting of the Society, again timed to coincide with one of our events. Travel expenses to these meetings are reimbursed.

Terms of office commence on 1 January 2016 and are provisionally for two years,* with the possibility for re-election. Additionally, to be eligible to stand for election as a Student Representative, you should anticipate being enrolled on a university course for the duration of the term of office. Interested candidates are welcome to contact the current SMA Vice-President, Kenneth Smith, for an informal chat (events@sma.ac.uk).

Please send all nominations and seconded nominations, along with a statement of candidature, to David Bretherton (treasurer@sma.ac.uk) by 12 noon on Monday, 14 December 2015. (Self-nominations are acceptable, but all nominations must be seconded.) Statements of candidature will be circulated and the email ballot will open shortly afterwards; voting will close at 12 noon on 21 December.

In the past, SMA members have enquired as to whether current office holders intend to stand for re-election, and so (without prejudice) we report that Julian Horton intends to stand for re-election as President and that Shay Loya intends to stand for re-election as Information Officer. Martin Curda will shortly be completing his studies and therefore will not stand for re-election as a Student Representative.

* The SMA is currently seeking charitable status, which may necessitate some or all elected officers to be re-confirmed in their posts once charitable status is attained; terms of office may also be altered. The Student Representative position is unlikely to be affected.

Equal Opportunities Officer

Following discussions at KeeleMAC over the summer, the SMA is keen to create an Equal Opportunities Officer. Potential candidates and other interested parties are invited to contact our Development Officer, Helen Thomas, in order to help us define the position. Helen can be contacted at development@sma.ac.uk.

Newsletter

The 2015 Autumn SMA Newsletter is being delayed until January 2016, so that results of the SMA elections may be reported therein.

The SMA Committee.
