2019 Board Elections Call for Nominations
CS-Can/Info-Can is a national organization whose mission is to foster excellence in Computer Science research and higher education in Canada, in order to drive innovation and benefit society. The organization 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 2019, we will renew three Board members:
- Two Board positions, referred to as Individual positions, to be elected by individual members of the organization. The final ballot should ideally contain at least four such nominees.
- One Board position, referred to as Departmental positions, to be elected by Departments. The final ballot will ideally contain at least two such nominees.
The Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for the three Board positions to be filled by academics in Computer Science Departments or in Departments (such as Computer Engineering departments) or Schools where Computing is a major focus. We are seeking individuals with time, energy, and initiative to help shape the organization as it gets off the ground, reflecting the values and priorities of the organization’s members and stakeholders. All individuals should be great team players. This will be a working board, with all members contributing substantially to the organization’s activities. Both self-nominations and nominations by others are welcome for the Board. Computing education and research in Canada can have profound impact on all Canadians. Accordingly, we strongly encourage nominations of people who can ensure a breadth of perspective and experience on the board. Therefore, applications and nominations from qualified Aboriginal people, persons with a disability, racially visible persons, women, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and all qualified candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community are welcome. forum.The nomination form is available at the link below. Brief biographical information and a statement of interest are requested. Only CS-Can/Info-Can members can be nominated (membership is automatic if the nominee’s unit is an institutional member). Please ensure that the nominee is willing to serve. The deadline for nominations is June 15, 2019. Questions about the above can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
