Members of the LSA in good standing may vote through November 2, 2013 on the 2014 Slate of Candidates for LSA Officers and Executive Committee members and on a proposed constitutional amendment.  The ballot is available here;  LSA members must log in to the website in order to access it. 

The Executive Committee is the main governing body of the LSA, providing oversight to ensure the Society’s continuing operations. The Committee’s primary responsibility is to engage in strategic planning and evaluation of the LSA’s goals and objectives, including the Linguistic Institute, the Annual Meeting, the journal Language, and the development of new programs and activities to serve the linguistics community. Recently, the Executive Committee authorized far-reaching changes to the LSA’s publishing program.

The proposed constitutional amendment relates to the addition of Semantics and Pragmatics to the LSA’s roster of publications.
