CS-Can|Info-Can is run by a Board of Directors whose members serve staggered three year terms, with some elected directly by membership and others by units. In 2020, the Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for:

- One Board position to represent student members and to be elected by student members. The final ballot should ideally contain at least two such nominees.
The Board member to represent students is to be filled by a graduate student in a CS-Can|Info-Can member university department.
The other three Board positions are to be filled by researchers or academics in CS-Can|Info-Can member university departments.
Both self-nominations and nominations by others are welcomed for the Board. We strongly encourage nominations of people who can ensure a breadth of perspective and experience on the Board.
