Election of Officers

Nominating Committee Seeking Board Nominations 

It is important that the CRS's Board is representative of our membership as a whole. Diversity, inclusive of gender, ethnicity, institution and research specialty can only be achieved when members actively participate in the success of the organization. We encourage you to nominate and elect members who will support and foster the mission and vision of CRS.

How to Nominate

Nominations for 2021 Board Members must be submitted via this form no later than October 30, 2020 11:59 pm EST. 

Open Positions:

  • President-Elect
  • Secretary 
  • Treasurer-Elect
  • Director-at-Large (2)


According to the CRS Bylaws, "If there is more than one nominee for any office or directorship, the Secretary shall submit a ballot to the membership, listing all candidates for each office and directorship, for which more than one candidate has been nominated. Said ballot shall have a short biographical sketch of each nominee and shall be submitted to the membership at least forty-five (45) days prior to the Annual Business Meeting." Ballots will be sent via e-blast to current members and close on the set deadline at 11:59 pm EST. The newly elected officers will take office at the close of the Annual Meeting.
