CSA Board Candidates 2016

Return to Blog

It has been gratifying and overwhelming to see the wealth of nominations submitted for new CSA Board members, and the willingness of so many individuals to share their expertise towards the growth of this organization. Many thanks to our members for these nominations, and to all of the nominees for their dedication to the advancement of this field.

The CSA Governance and Nominations Committee has had the difficult and thankless task of narrowing this amazing selection of over 60 nominees to a ballot of just thirteen individuals. In making this selection, the committee was guided by priorities in Board development and an interest in reflecting diversity across this field.  Statements of interest and CVs from each of these candidates can be accessed by clicking on the candidate’s name.

Of these thirteen, the five candidates receiving top votes will be elected to join the CSA Board of Directors. These five new Board members will replace four outgoing members, and will serve for three years. We aim for annual replacement-plus-one until the Board reaches a membership of fifteen.

Everyone who was registered as a member by 1 MAY 2016 will be sent a ballot by email on 6 MAY 2016. If you are expecting to receive a ballot and have not seen one by 8 MAY 2016, please contact us.
