The Nominating Committee is responsible for recruiting
a slate of candidates to run for office each year. The Committee
consists of three members appointed by the OBS-SIS Chair. It begins
its work in the fall preceding the election after consulting with
the Chair about volunteers to run for office who may have responded
to the annual membership survey.
Every year the SIS elects a Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect
and one Member-at-Large. In addition, a Secretary/Treasurer is elected
in odd-numbered years. According to the Bylaws, there must be at
least one candidate for each office.
Anyone interested in running for office should contact
the OBS-SIS Chair or the chair of the Nominating Committee for further
