Nominating Process: Any member of the collective can nominate new members by circulating a brief message nominating a new member and providing a short biography of the nominee to the Fembot listserv. Self-nominations are also fine. After the nomination receives a second, there will be a one-week discussion period. If there is no discussion or objections, the nomination will be considered approved. If there is no second, the nomination will be dropped. The chair of the advisory board will oversee nominations.
NB: Members of the collective, Fembot Advisory Board, and other positions do not have to have PhDs and do not need to be faculty members. They can be feminist media artists, media producers, media critics, graduate students, and undergraduates.
