GSA has a Committee on Nominations consisting of eight members including the GSA Executive Director
(ex officio, non-voting). The committee meets each year to consider nominees for candidates
for open positions. Throughout the year, possible candidates self-nominate or are nominated by their
colleagues within GSA. The committee reviews this list and all supporting documentation submitted,
including each person’s record of service at GSA or Associated Societies, before making its
recommendation to Council. Once Council reviews and approves the list of candidates, the balloting
process is organized in preparation for annual elections.
