Election of Fellows
Active Fellows are eligible to vote in the Econometric Society Election of Fellows, and Officers and Council. Active Fellows are defined as those Fellows who have paid their membership dues for either the current or the previous year.
Active Fellows will receive an email on how to access the electronic ballot during the election period. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the electronic ballot.
Nominate a Candidate for Fellow
Starting with the election of Fellows in 2006, nomination and voting will only be done electronically.
Eligibility to nominate: Any member of the Econometric Society can nominate candidates for Fellow.
(Step 1) Initiate a nomination by completing a nomination form:
The information required includes the name, position and address of the nominee; his/her service to the Econometric Society; a six-item bibliography; and a nomination statement (maximum 125 words*) that summarizes the main scientific achievements of the nominee. Note that even after you have submitted the nomination, you will be able to change the information on the form.
(Step 2) Invite endorsements: You will be instructed how to do this once you have submitted a nomination form. Not more than 10 endorsers, including the initiator, can be listed on the nomination form distributed with the ballot. If more than 10 names are received, the initiator will select the subset of names to appear on the form. If Y endorsements are received, then the phrase "plus X additional endorsements" will appear on the form, where X=Y-10.
Rules: If three or more Fellows endorse a candidate, then the candidate's name will automatically appear on the ballot of that year. Otherwise, the Nominating Committee for Fellows will vote to determine whether the candidate will appear on the ballot. For more details see Section 5 of the Rules and Procedures.
Deadline: The deadline for submitting nomination endorsements is May 31.
