2020/2021 Nominations Committee Announced

The PASS Board of Directors has selected the 2020/2021 NomCom!

During their one-year term, these Committee members will serve and represent the diverse PASS Community through the Board of Directors election process. It is essential to have a committee that understands the role and responsibility of PASS Board members, the existing and potential issues the Board faces as a whole, and has the ability to ask applicable and concise questions of candidates based on this knowledge. Further, it is important to represent the PASS community with a committee that is diverse on multiple levels (gender, race, involvement within PASS, etc.). Five community members were chosen in order to represent all of these components.

Thank you to everyone who submitted to this year’s Call for Interest and congratulations to our 2020/2021 NomCom members:
