2017-18 Board of Trustees Open Invitation

We're looking for new Board members to help guide ASF into the future. Click Read More to find out how you can be a member of our Board of Trustees.

Dear Members of the ASF community,

At the beginning of every year, the ASF Board of Trustees initiates the process of identifying, evaluating and ultimately proposing members of our community for the open positions on the Board of Trustees. The Nominating Committee is charged with this duty. It is independent of the Board and will report to it only to present its recommendations. I am pleased to chair the committee this year.

Nominating Committee Members

  • Carla Ormsbee – Chair
  • Aliki Elias
  • César Buenrostro
  • Amy Gallie
  • Carlos Ibáñez

This year the Nominating Committee will be proposing two U.S. citizens for Proprietary Director and three non-U.S. citizens for Director-at-Large positions, for Board terms that would begin July 1, 2017. All members of the ASF community who are interested in serving on the Board of Trustees should submit an application, including a short cover letter stating the reasons for wanting to serve on the Board. Click here to download the application form or pick one up from Assistant to the Board Elisa Aguirre at the Executive Director's Office, 5227-4913. Applications must be submitted by Friday, February 17, and interviews with potential candidates will then be scheduled.

The ASF community is rich with many talented and dedicated individuals who would be considered outstanding, contributing members to the Board of Trustees, however, we have a limited number of positions to be filled. As such, in addition to Board membership, the Nominating Committee will be looking for individuals who could serve on Board Committees. We look forward to meeting committed community members interested in leading ASF into the future.

Yours truly,

Carla Ormsbee

Chair, ASF Nominating Committee
