The annual process of nominating and electing new Members to ASSAf has commenced in accordance with Regulation 1 of the Academy, and you are herewith requested to submit nominations by using the attached nomination form.

Primary nominators should use Section B (the citation) on the nomination form to strengthen the nominee’s application – this information is regarded as prime information about the candidate that will be made available to Members for election purposes. It is important that the nomination is supported by a strong motivation by the nominee in alignment with the objectives for Membership to the Academy (Section 8 of the nomination form refers in this regard).

A reminder to the nominators of unsuccessful candidates in a previous election cycle to indicate whether they wish to have their nominations included again in the current election, and if so, to submit revised and updated versions of the documentation required.

Completed nomination forms and a full curriculum vitae for the nominee must be returned to Ms Renate Venier by email at

The deadline for the submission of nominations is 30 May 2024 (midnight) – unfortunately due to tight timelines, no late submissions will be considered.
