Are you part of a search committee for a faculty position or fellowship? AHA members now have access to a powerful tool to make their work easier: Interfolio’s ByCommittee. The American Historical Association has partnered with Interfolio to give individual members a free one-year subscription to ByCommittee, a convenient and secure web platform for committee-based decision making.

Interfolio’s ByCommittee moves the processes of committee work online, allowing departments to assemble and manage committees, securely collect and access materials, and evaluate candidates from any place with an Internet connection. For those who like traditional paper based methods, materials can also be downloaded for offline review. The program provides a “form builder” for collecting equal employment opportunity information, and the platform emphasizes strict and entirely customizable privacy and security settings. The implementation is light and fast, allowing you to set up and publish your first opening right away. Using ByCommittee increases the level of transparency, communication, and access to appropriate information. This streamlines the process of evaluating committee members, and allows faculty members to devote more time to research, teaching, and service to their institution and profession.

Log in at MY AHA and click Sign Up for ByCommittee under Interfolio. Fill out the Partnership Contact Form to sign up for your free account today. A representative from Interfolio will be in contact to complete the process.
