CAIMS*SCMAI 2014 Election: Call for Nominations

DEADLINE EXTENDED to February 14, 2014

CAIMS*SCMAI will be holding an election next winter (March 2014) for:

- Two Member-at-Large positions on the Board of Directors
- Treasurer
- Communications Officer

The member-at-large positions held by Matt Davison, Hongmei Zhu, and Nilima Nigam will come to an end in 2014. Due to a tied election in 2013, resulting in an additional member-at-large, the upcoming three vacancies will be filled by two new members. These member-at-large positions will be for a three-year term. The appointments of Treasurer and Communications Officer will be for two years.

The position of Communications Officer was introduced this year following approval at the 2013 Annual General Meeting. A description of this position is as follows:

The Communications Officer is a member of the Board of Directors and of the Executive Committee. The main duties of the Communications Officer are to manage those affairs of CAIMS*SCMAI that concern public visibility, promotion of CAIMS*SCMAI and the professional activities of the membership. As well as short-term activities to do with the day-to-day activities of CAIMS*SCMAI, the Communications Officer will manage long-term development of communications technology that supports the goals of CAIMS*SCMAI. In this role, the Communications Officer will work closely with the Secretary and Treasurer. The precise duties of the Communications Officer shall be determined by the Board of Directors and are likely to evolve with the needs of the corporation. The ideal nominee will be bilingual (English/French).

All members of CAIMS*SCMAI are invited to put forward names of candidates for these offices. Nominations should reach the CAIMS Secretary, Sharene Bungay <sharene@mun.ca> by February 14, 2014.
