disciplines representative of VSS members (the VSS president chairs the
Nominating Committee).  The current members of the Nominating Committee are
Bill Geisler, Mel Goodale, Norma Graham, Eileen Kowler, and Concetta
Morrone.  For each open Director position, the Nominating Committee selects
from the nominees a slate of two candidates who are highly respected
