Petition Nominees Sought for CRA Board of Directors

The Computing Research Association seeks your help in suggesting nominations for its Board of Directors. We need individuals who have the time, energy, initiative, and resources to work on CRA issues on behalf of the CRA community. Ours is a working board, and all members are expected to work on community issues.

The CRA Elections Committee has recently announced its slate of nominees for a seat on the Board of Directors. CRA also encourages nominations by petition. Petition nominations signed by the Designated Voting Representatives of at least five Constituent Member Organizations that are current in dues payment will be accepted until February 3, 2017.

A complete nomination package for petition candidates must be submitted here no later than February 3, 2017. Separately, each of the five supporters of the petition must send an e-mail to simply stating their support for the petition candidate to run for a seat on the CRA Board of Directors.
