The International Association for the Study of Popular Music, US Branch (IASPM-US) seeks nominations and self-nominations to serve on the IASPM-US Board of Directors and Executive Committee. All members serve for two years, with the President serving an additional two-year term as “Past President” upon expiration of his/her term of office.

The following positions are open, and will be filled by an election to be held in February 2016. Terms of office will begin at the end of the national meeting in Calgary (May 2016).
