Special Issue: 2010 CAIMS*SCMAI Election Results for Board of Directors

Elections were held in the spring of 2010 for the Treasurer and two Members-at-Large
positions on the Board of Directors of CAIMS*SCMAI.

The Tresurer position was filled by acclamation, there being only one candidate
(Professor Dhavide Aruliah of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology)
for the position. Professor Aruliah will serve as Treasurer until the 2012 CAIMS*SCMAI
Annual Meeting.

We are extremely grateful for the three candidates who put their names forward for the
Members-at-Large positions, Professor Michael Li (University of Alberta), Professor
Theodore Kolokolnikov (Dalhousie University) and Professor Tony Humphries (McGill University).
The openings were to fill the positions vacated by Professor Dhavide Aruliah
(University of Ontario Institute of Technology) and Professor Ian Frigaard
(University of British Columbia).

On Tuesday, April 21, 2010, Professor Thomas G. Berry and Ms. Darja Kalajdzievska
(both of the Department of Mathematics, University of Manitoba) counted the votes
for the Members-at-Large positions, with the following results.

After counting the ballots, Professor Michael Li and Tony Humphries were each declared
elected for three-year terms ending at CAIMS*SCMAI 2013.

We wish once again to thank all those who allowed their names to go forward in the election
and to congratulate those who were elected. We thank Professor Dhavide Aruliah, Professor Ian Frigaard
and Professor Paul Muir, whose terms on the Board will end at this year’s AGM, for their
outstanding service to the Society.
