Nominations for 2018 Member-Elected Board Positions


This thread is for tracking, posting, and replying to nominations and seconds for member-elected board positions. This post will be updated as the status changes. For discussion or questions to candidates, please use the designated Q&A threads for each position instead.

To nominate or second candidates, or respond to a nomination, you may either post in this thread, or email

Nominations must be seconded to be valid. You cannot nominate or second yourself. Once you have accepted a valid nomination by the deadline, you will be added to the list of candidates below. Once you are nominated and seconded, you may change your acceptance status at will until the nominations deadline of Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 11:59pm.

For general information about the elections meeting and process, see 2018 Elections Overview.

After November 3, all responses other than "Accept" ("Decline", "Defer", or "Not present") were removed from this top post (a record of their nominations remains in posts below). Candidates may still be nominated, and candidates may still change their responses after this date between "Accept" and "Not accept" until the final online nominations deadline of November 8, 2017, 11:59pm.
