The Computing Research Association seeks your help in recruiting candidates for its Board of Directors. We want individuals who have time, energy, initiative, and resources to work on CRA issues on behalf of the entire CRA community. We have a working Board, and all members are expected to work on community issues.

Members of the computing research community who are interested in serving on the CRA Board should nominate themselves by completing this form by December 16, 2022.  Nominees do not need to be affiliated with a CRA member organization.

The CRA Board Election Process and Timeline.

  • Members of the computing research community who are interested in serving on the CRA Board should nominate themselves by completing this form. Nominees do not need to be affiliated with a CRA member organization.
  • The deadline for receipt of nominations is December 16, 2022.
  • The Elections Committee will carefully consider all nominations, with the aim of a final ballot slate containing about twice as many candidates as there are open slots.
  • Important criteria considered by the Elections committee includes distribution of candidates and current Board members among member institutions, distribution among types and sizes of institutions, evidence of leadership, diversity, and evidence of interest in and capacity for service beyond what is expected of all faculty members and researchers.
  • In early January, the Elections Committee will announce the draft ballot. Additional names may be added by the CRA community (as described below).
  • On January 20, 2023, nominations by petition are due. Each such nomination must be signed by the chairs/heads of at least five constituent member organizations that are current in dues payment. Current CRA members are listed at http://cra.org/about/membership/member-list/
  • In late January 2023, final ballots will be distributed to CRA chairs/heads/deans and lab directors. Each will have one vote for each open slot on the CRA Board.
  • On February 17, 2023, completed ballots must be returned to CRA.
  • In late February 2023, election results will be announced.
