Appearing below are the Harvard Alumni Association’s (HAA) candidates for the 2002 election to the Harvard Board of Overseers and the HAA Board of Directors. The election this spring will determine five new Overseers and six new HAA Elected Directors. Ballots will be mailed by April 15 and results of the election will be announced on Commencement Day, June 6.
The nominations reflect the deliberations of the HAA Nominating Committee, a broadly representative group of Harvard graduates whose 13 voting members include three present or former Overseers as well as 10 other alumni/ae chosen by the HAA Executive Committee.
Candidates for election may also be nominated by petition. Prospective petition candidates have until Feb. 11 to gather and submit the requisite number of signatures (259 for Overseer this year) from eligible degree-holders. Signatures must appear on official nomination forms obtained from and returned to the Secretary of the Board of Overseers, 17 Quincy St.
For Elected Director, 255 valid signatures must be filed at Wadsworth House, the office of the HAA. A list of all the candidates, along with the HAA Nominating Committee’s annual report, will be published in the Gazette after Feb. 11.
