Each year two of the four NASS officers are up for election and NASS members may propose candidates by writing to the Nominating Committee by July 1st.  If the slate of candidates is uncontested, the Nominating Committee announces the result, traditionally done at the Annual General meeting held during the NASS Sundial Conference in the late summer of each year.  If there are multiple candidates for a given office,  then the election is done by mail to all members.

At the 2004 General Meeting it was resolved that the Society should seek to expand membership participation in the Society's leadership for the present and to prepare for the future. Therefore we are looking for volunteers to participate in the following committees:

Standing Committees identified in the Bylaws that invite participation are:

Membership Committee: [chaired by the Vice President, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . The Membership Committee works on ways to obtain new members and seeks to support the existing membership in a variety of ways. This committee promotes the society and its goals through various means.

Sundial Documentation Committee: [chaired by This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , Sundial Registrar]. This committee is responsible for recording sundials of historic or other interest in North America, and obtaining or preparing a file on each. NASS enters and maintains a record of these dials in a publicly available database called the NASS Sundial Registry. As such, the chairman of the Sundial Documentation Committee is the NASS Sundial Registrar responsible for all forms of the Sundial Registry, including on-line versions at the NASS website. Both the Sundial Documentation Committee and the NASS website committee encourage all NASS members and the public at large to submit sundial sightings of interesting dials, public and private. Most registered sundials are publicly owned and are publicly accessible; NASS does register appropriate sundials located on private property in the Registry but requires dial-owner permission to show these private sundials on the web.

Special Publications Committee: [chaired by Fred SawyerNASS.President, editor of The Compendium]. This committee solicits, identifies, or otherwise obtains articles or materials for publication. The committee is called upon to assist in editing material for NASS publications.

Nominating Committee: [chair appointed by NASS President]. A committee of no fewer than three members is convened annually. This Committee solicits nominations for officers and directors, and considers volunteers willing to fill vacancies on the Board of Directors.  Current chairman is Dudley Warner This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The President of the society from time to time forms additional committees and appoints chairpersons. The following committees need your support:

Internet Web Site Committee: [chaired by webmaster, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ]. The NASS Website is where our society meets the world through the Internet. Popular resources are our unique Register of North American sundials and our links page. The website has recently upgraded to a Content Management System (CMS) for article management and display of our Sundial Registry. Volunteers to maintain the site are always welcome.

Education Committee: [chair is open]. The Education Committee works to develop NASS dialing presentation material and media, supports sundial training and workshops, and provides educational material for teachers and students consistent with school curricula.

Editorial Committee: [chaired byFred Sawyer, NASS.Presidenteditor of The Compendium]. This committee supports the editor in soliciting, writing and editing material for our quarterly journal and in preparing the journal for publication and distribution. All NASS members are encouraged to submit articles on their experiences with sundials and sundial projects, articles on local sundials, sundial history, or sundial theory.

Conference Planning Committee: [chaired by Fred SawyerNASS.President]. This committee, whose membership may well vary from year to year, works on site selection, planning and hosting of the NASS annual conference.
