By George S. Holliday, Chair
The closing date for submitting bios for a PCB board position has passed. The bios are now in the hands of the nominating committee and the slate will be announced soon.
Bios of the selected slate of candidates will be posted to PCB members through various PCB public postings. Anyone who sent in a bio who was not selected for the slate may post his or her bio to the PCB-L and PCB-leadership listservs.
This year, the board positions held by Joseph Fagnani, Rosemary Martin, Jacqueline Wissinger and Thomas Reid are up for election.
The Candidates’ Forum will be held during the Friday evening general session. At that time you will hear from fellow PCB members about why they are seeking one of the positions. The elections will be held during the Saturday afternoon session.
If you are unable to attend the convention and wish to seek one of the positions, you can delegate someone to speak for you during the forum.
Guidelines for the Candidates Forum:
Anyone who submitted a bio to the PCB Nominating Committee according to the prescribed content and deadline may participate in the Candidates Forum if the chair of the Nominating Committee is notified of this desire no less than one hour prior to the Forum.
- Each candidate for the board will be given the same set of questions. During the forum, a candidate will present an answer to the one mandatory question, and the candidate shall choose one other question to answer in the allotted time. Prepared answers shall be presented at the Candidates Forum within a three minute time limit. These questions will be distributed once the slate has been chosen.
