Announcement: Election of members for the Board of ISCA (2015-2019)
The ISCA Board currently has 14 members from 11 countries (see full list below). Members are elected to the Board for a period of four years and no member may serve on the Board for more than two consecutive terms. The following Board members will have served for two terms of four years in September: Tanja SCHULTZ, Alan BLACK, Helen MENG, and Bernd MÖBIUS, and thus these four will be retiring. In addition, Satoshi NAKAMURA will be ending his term as well. Thus we have openings for five members this year.
In accordance with the ISCA by-laws, elections to the Board will take place in April 2015. We invite nominations from the ISCA membership. Each nomination requires the support of three members of the Association and agreement from the candidate (e.g., by email). The ISCA statutes specify a maximum of three Board members from any one country. Each ISCA member will be asked to cast a anonymous ballot in the election, via a survey website.
Members elected to the Board will be expected to have one of the areas of responsibility listed below, to commit time to furthering the work of ISCA in their area, to attend the Board meetings that take place at each annual INTERSPEECH conference and to participate in additional virtual meetings during the year (via teleconference). All candidates should be aware of these obligations and commit themselves to fulfilling them before agreeing to be nominated.
