The ATSC’s Nominating Committee is charged with nominating candidates for the annual election of the ATSC Board of Directors. The Nominating Committee will also recommend one or two directors to stand for election as Board Chair of ATSC.
The By-Laws of ATSC call for a total of 11 Nominating Committee members with the following committee composition: five members from the Board members representing the JCIC founding organizations, up to three individuals from other members of the current Board and at least three from other (non-Board) ATSC members.
Due to ATSC Board positions expiring at the end of this year there will be three board vacancies for the Nominating Committee to consider.
Seven members of the Nominating Committee have been selected so far:
Chairman Brian Markwalter (CEA),
Kevin Gage (NAB),
Andy Scott (NCTA),
Peter Symes (SMPTE),
Yiyan Wu (IEEE),
Jim Kutzner (PBS), and
Dave Siegler (Cox Media Group).
A call for members to fill the four remaining openings on the Nominating Committee has been issued. Names are being accepted until Sept. 9 and then the ATSC Board will make final selections.
If you’re an ATSC voting member interested in serving on the Nominating Committee, please contact Nominating Committee Chairman Brian Markwalter at firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: If you or another member of your organization is thinking about becoming a candidate for the ATSC Board of Directors, please refrain from volunteering for the Nominating Committee.
