It’s the time of the year we are calling for nominations for a new CES president-elect
and six board directors. The president-elect will assume office from September 1,
2011 to August 31, 2012. The board of directors will work with President Yanling
Wang from September 1, 2010 to August 31, 2011. The CES Nomination and Election
Committee (NEC) consists of three immediate former-presidents as voting members and
the current president-elect as a non-voting member. The NEC oversees the nomination
and election process.
The general procedure is as follows:
(1) To be eligible for President, a candidate must have been a Member of CES for
more than two years, must have served as a member of the Board of Directors for at
least one term, and must work primarily in North America during the presidential term.
(2) Anyone with valid CES membership can be nominated to serve as a board director.
The majority of the Board of Directors must work primarily in North America during

six candidates for the board of directors. The nominator must have the consent of
the nominee for the nomination. Any candidate on the ballot for the election must
be nominated by at least two CES members. If you are interested in serving, or know
someone that is willing and qualified, please contact the NEC (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All nominations must be received by May 12, Wednesday. The NEC will be in contact
with nominees for their Bio and Statement before presenting a list of candidacy to
the CES membership for consideration. We would like to urge all of you to participate
