John Nerbonne was elected chair of the Steering Committee of ADHO at DH2014 in Lausanne (July 2014) for a two-year term. Due to regrettable circumstances he had to resign in November 2015. I was asked to take over for the remainder of his term and was elected interim chair on November 20.
 

At its annual meeting on Sunday 10 July 2016, the ADHO Steering Committee has officially accepted Humanistica, L'association francophone des humanités numériques/digitales as a Constituent Organization of ADHO. The official starting date is 1 January 2017 (ADHO is held to the calendar year as fiscal year), but the representative of Humanistica will be part of all discussions and have voting rights from 16 July 2016 onwards. Humanistica will also have representation on all appropriate ADHO committees.

Each year, two early career scholars are selected through a competitive process to work with ADHO’s Communications Chair to promote ADHO and its constituents’ outreach mission through the publication of news releases, blog posts, listserv announcements, and social media posts. We at ADHO are pleased to announce our 2016-17 Communications Fellows:
 

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) seeks applicants for its 2016-2017 Communications fellowship. Working on a small team, the fellow will write news releases, blog posts, and announcements about ADHO, its constituent organizations, and the broader digital humanities community; monitor and update ADHO’s social media presence; maintain its website; help to develop and implement ADHO’s outreach strategy; and perform other communications-related responsibilities. The Communications fellow should anticipate spending approximately 3-4 hours per week on the position.

The Program Committee for Digital Humanities 2016 (Kraków, Poland) is pleased to announce that registration has opened! Further information about registering can be found at  http://dh2016.adho.org/registration/. The preliminary schedule can be viewed at https://www.conftool.pro/dh2016/sessions.php.

The ADHO Conference Coordinating Committee now invites proposals to host the following DH conference, in 2019.

With the DH 2016 programme shaping up and the Research Data Alliance’s (RDA) 7th Plenary in Tokyo approaching, it seems like a good time to highlight some potential areas of cross-organization engagement.  
 

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO) makes bursary awards to 14 or more students and young scholars who have submissions accepted for presentation at the annual Digital Humanities international conference. These awards are to encourage new contributions to scholarship in the digital humanities from our diverse global constituency and to involve new participants in the application of information technology in humanities research. Paper, poster and panel submissions qualify for consideration.

Last November I asked the members of the ADHO Steering Committee (SC) and all others interested in ADHO and Digital Humanities to send me suggestions and ideas about possible guidelines for communication in such a culturally diverse global association as ADHO is becoming. I received wise and thoughtful input, and the SC made a good start with the discussion before the holidays, dealing with some of the suggestions. We are now continuing the discussion, focusing on diversity issues. We will deal with such issues as: What is the ideal situation we as ADHO would want?
