2018 Call for Nominations

CLSI is seeking candidates for the 2018 Board of Directors election. The election will be held October 15–November 17, 2018. Anyone can nominate an individual; however, the individual must be a CLSI member in good standing. The deadline for nominating a candidate is August 24, 2018, at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. Candidates will be considered for the following positions:

  • 1 Officer – Treasurer (3-year term beginning January 1, 2019)
  • 1 Officer – Secretary (3-year term beginning January 1, 2019)
  • 1 Director – Government Constituency (3-year term beginning January 1, 2019)

See a list of the current CLSI Board of Directors here.

Board Composition and Balance

The Board comprises up to 19 officers and directors and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). 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) do not exceed by more than one the number of officers and directors from the other two constituencies. 

Skills and Expertise

In order to ensure that members of the Board as a whole possess the best combination of skills, CLSI employs a Skills Mix Matrix when evaluating nominees. The Skills Mix Matrix is available here. Please ask your nominee to fill out the form and attach it to the Nomination Form below or have them send it directly to Stephanie Robinson at
