Title Call for Nominations
Date 2016-10-21

Dear CPGIS members,
Please accept our revised Call for Nominations.  Thanks to those who have provided timely and constructive feedback and suggestion.  
This is a call for CPGIS members to nominate or self-nominate members to hold positions in the following  vacancies.


1) President (2017-2018)

  • The President-Elect will work together with the CPGIS President (2016-2017), Xinyue Ye and other CPGIS  officers and BOD members, and will start his or her presidential term in November 2017.  

Note: this is the position previously announced as the Vice President, we have changed it to President  (2017-2018), a.k.a. President-Elect (2016-2017) to reflect the convention in CPGIS election and operation. 

2) Six seats on the BOD (2016 - 2018)
  • Five regular BOD members, and
  • One student BOD member

The six new members of the BOD are to fill the vacancies resulted from the departure of Yuqi Bai, T. Edwin  Chow, Yan Liu, Xuelian Meng, Xun Shi, and Tao Tang who have made great contributions to our community and will complete their two-year term at the end of October 2016. To encourage participation from students, we are glad to add another student BOD member for this coming term.

FYI, you can find the list of current and past BOD members from the CPGIS website:
