Nominations Review Process

The Nominations Subcommittee’s review will be conducted in two stages. An initial review will determine the candidates to be forwarded to the second stage based on a variety of factors (nomination letters, biographical sketches, disclosures, self-appraisal questionnaires, record of service to the Society and/or the profession, along with an analysis of the Board's commitment to diversity and requirements for specific skills, experience or knowledge). Those forwarded to the second stage will be interviewed by members of the Nominations Subcommittee. The final slate will be presented to the current Board members and then sent to the voting membership for approval.
