Call for Nominations of Candidates for 2018 ICSA Officers

Sunday, March 11, 2018

The ICSA 2018 Nomination Committee is seeking nominations of candidates for the 2019 officers. The positions include ICSA President-Elect, ICSA Biometrics Section Chair and ICSA Board of Directors. We need to nominate two candidates from either academia or non-academia to run for the President-Elect position, two candidates to run for the Biometrics Section Chair position, and at least 5 candidates to run for the Board positions. According to the ICSA Bylaws, President-Elect should be from "non-academia", "academia" and "no restriction" on a three-year rotational basis - one year from "non-academia", followed by "academia", and the third year open. For 2019, there will be no restriction for the candidates. For the Board of Directors, we hope the candidates can be balanced with respect to gender, region, professional interests, and area of employment (academia, industry/business, or government).


Candidates for all positions need to be active ICSA members, and need to have strong interests in serving the ICSA. The President-Elect serves a three-year term - 2019 as President-Elect, 2020 as President, and 2021 as Past President. The Biometrics Section Chair serves a one-year term for 2019 and sits in the 2019 Board. The Board of Directors serve a three-year term from Jan. 2019 to Dec. 2021, and need to participate in two ICSA Board meetings each year - one in June during the Applied Statistics Symposium, and the other in August during the JSM.


If you know of an active ICSA member who is appropriate for any of these positions, please contact Dr. Colin O. Wu ( by April 15, 2018.
