Board Composition and Balance

The Board of Directors shall consist of not less than nine (9) and not more than twelve (12) elected directors plus the officers. In order to ensure balance, CLSI's bylaws require that the total number of elected officers and directors from any one constituency (ie, professions, government, and industry) not exceed by more than one the number of officers and directors from the other two constituencies.

Skills and Expertise

CLSI employs a skills mix matrix when evaluating nominees in order to elect the nominees with the most valuable skillsets on the Board. No one nominee is expected to possess them all. The skills mix matrix is attached here. Please ask your nominee to fill out the skills mix matrix and attach it below.
