Election Committee – call for volunteers!

Hi everyone!

As discussed at our February chapter meeting, we are looking for 2 individuals to volunteer on our election committee to steer the upcoming Board election for the role of President.

To qualify for the election committee, you need to be an (ISC)² member in good standing who has been active with the Chapter this year (e.g. attended at least one event this year). Preference will be given to fully credentialed (ISC)² members.

If you are not a credential holder or an Associate of (ISC)², you are not eligible for the committee. However, you would be able to help us administer the voting survey link, validate (ISC)² membership of the voters, and other tasks that demand objectivity and independence from voting members, so your application would be welcome as well.

  5. Skills and past experience that would help you with this duty (max. 200 words, or attach a resume)
  6. Your contributions to the Chapter this year, as applicable (max. 200 words)

More information about the Election Committee: 

  • The Election Committee will meet on a weekly basis from March 2 to April 15 to help the election process
  • Approximate commitment: 30 min per week
  • Duties include:
    • Review and finalize the mechanics of the election process
    • Review candidate profiles and vote on candidates who are eligible to run for the position of President
    • Oversee the election to ensure a fair and transparent process
