Nominating Committee Seeks Qualified Candidates

Monday, January 12, 2015  

From: Mary Jones, AIS Council Secretary

The Nominating Committee for the 2015 elections has been formed and will be assembling a ballot early in 2015. The members of the nominating committee and their regional affiliations are as follows:

The committee’s charge this year is to assemble a high quality slate of candidates for the following open positions:

  • President-Elect (must come from Region 1)
  • Vice President of Meetings and Conferences
  • Vice President of Member Services
  • Region 1 Representative

The responsibilities for each position are described in the Bylaws that can be found at:

Candidates for all positions must be members in good standing and should have experience/skills that would qualify them for the particular responsibilities of the opening. All candidates must be able to attend four Council meetings annually. Two of the meetings are usually held face-to-face at ICIS and either ECIS or PACIS, so the individual will need his/her own resources to finance the associated travel. (AIS provides limited financial assistance for travel on a need-basis.) Depending on the position, active members of Council spend approximately 8-10 hours per month fulfilling their volunteer duties.

If you are interested in running for one of the available positions, please send an email to the Committee Chair, Jae Kyu Lee, by January 31, 2015 at  Members will also be given an opportunity to add names to the ballot as write-in candidates after the ballot is announced in March.
