Final Call for VSS Board of Director Nomination

March 3rd is the last day to nominate members to serve on the Vision
Sciences Society Board of Directors. There are two 4-year positions open.
The Board's responsibilities include scheduling the Annual Meeting,
implementing and monitoring VSS policies, budget oversight, and other
organizational activities. The Board meets twice a year, during the Annual
Meeting and in late January.

Any regular VSS member in good standing may be nominated, with the exception
of individuals now on the Board, or who have served on the Board within the
last four years.

Nomination Procedures

Each nomination must be endorsed by 3 regular VSS members. One person should
email the nomination to  <mailto:shauneywilson at visionsciences.org>
shauneywilson at visionsciences.org with a cc: to the other two nominators. The
other two nominators should indicate their endorsement by forwarding the
nominating email to  <mailto:shauneywilson at visionsciences.org> Shauney
Wilson. Please include a recent vita and a short paragraph describing the
qualifications of the nominee, as well as an assurance that the nominee is
willing to serve. With their consent, nominees may remain on the nominee
list for three years. 

Selection of Slate of Candidates 

The VSS bylaws provide for a
<http://www.visionsciences.org/nominating-committee/> Nominating Committee,
composed of VSS members who are highly respected scientists chosen to
represent the broad range of disciplines representative of VSS members (the
VSS President chairs the Nominating Committee). The current members of the
Nominating Committee are Bill Geisler, Barbara Dosher, Michael Morgan, Mary
Peterson and Preeti Verghese. For each open Director position, the
Nominating Committee selects from the nominees a slate of candidates who are
highly respected scientists and who, when added to the Board of Directors,
would result in broad representation of the disciplines representative of
VSS members.
