The SIAM Nominations Committee, chaired by Eric Zeemering and committee members John Kincaid and Jayce Farmer, is seeking 3 candidates for the SIAM Executive Committee and one nominee to continue an uncompleted term. The full-term positions are for a three-year term, 2019-2022, and the uncompleted term ends in 2020. Please see our SIAM blog for the full list of Executive Committee members as well as the bylaws governing elections. David Swindell of Arizona State University has been appointed by the Chair to fill the empty seat until the upcoming regular election.
Executive committee members are actively engaged in the governance and work of the section, often contributing service to the Section’s committees and events. Together with the Chair, Chair-Elect, Secretary and Treasurer, Executive Committee members help guide SIAM’s ongoing contributions to the fields of intergovernmental administration and management.
