Call for Nominations of Candidates for 2020 ICSA Officers by the End of Feburary, 2019

Monday, January 28, 2019

The ICSA 2019 Nomination Committee is seeking for nominations of candidates for 2020 officers. The positions need to be filled are ICSA President-Elect, ICSA Biometrics Section Chair, and ICSA Board of Directors. For 2020, we need to nominate two candidates to run for the President-Elect position (both have to from Non-academia for this year), two candidates to run for the Biometrics Section Chair position, and 10 candidates to run for the Board positions. According to the ICSA Bylaws, President-Elect should be from academia, non-academia, or no restriction, on a three-year rotational basis – one year from academia, another from non-academia, and the third year open. For 2020, the candidates will be from non-academia. As to 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 member in 2019, and need to have a strong interest in serving 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 one-year term for the year 2020 and also sits in the 2020 Board. Board of Directors serve a three-year term from Jan. 2020 to Dec. 2022. Board of Directors need to participate in two ICSA Board meetings each year – one in June during the Applied Statistics Symposium, and the other one in August during the JSM. 

If you know of an active ICSA member who is appropriate for any of these positions, please inform Dr. Annie Qu ( by the end of February 2019.
