About Domain Representatives:

A Domain Representative is a voting member of the Board of Directors.  The open positions will be responsible for initiatives and oversight of the Society’s portfolio in the respective Domains.  Candidates should have demonstrated interest, expertise, and investment in the area of their Domain.

The Division’s eligibility criteria for all positions are:
