For the full 2019 election slate, go here.
The Society has again retained Vote-Now to conduct its election of officers, directors, and committee members. In August Vote-Now will send instructions for voting in this election to all SCS members in good standing for 2019. Members for whom we have a valid e-mail address will receive their instructions via e-mail; all others will receive instructions via first-class mail. Regardless of the method of notification, all members will once again have the option to vote online or to use a paper ballot. The deadline for receipt of paper ballots will be the close of business on September 16, 2019. Online balloting will close at 3:00 a.m. Eastern time on September 18, 2019.
The online ballot will contain links to the election statements of individual candidates and to a proposed revision the text of the SCS Statement on Professional Ethics. This revision does not add substantive new material to the statement but rather updates the statement, which was out of date in many ways. The work of revising the statement was conducted by the Professional Matters Division in 2018 and further revisions were made after a member comment period in Fall 2018.
Please note that there are three candidates this year for President-Elect, since Professor Shelley P. Haley successfully petitioned to be added to the ballot. Please also note that one candidate has withdrawn, for health reasons, from the Nominating Committee slate, with the result that there are only three candidates standing for the Nominating Committee.
