CS-Can|Info-Can is looking for energetic, community-minded members of the Canadian computer science community to join our Board of Directors.
This Board Director opportunity provides strategic oversight of the organization’s broad range of activities. Board Directors participate in monthly one-hour virtual meetings and are encouraged to lead participation in research, communication, recognition, and outreach programs across the country.

- Actively promoting an inclusive environment that supports diversity and encourages participation by underrepresented groups.
- Developing two-way academia-industry interactions that encourage innovation and the ethical application of computer technology.
- Informing public policy debates at all levels on issues involving ICT through impactful and timely strategic positioning.
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 departments.
