PASS Board of Directors Election: Candidates announced

Earlier this morning the official list of candidates running for the PASS Board of Directors was announced. I’m both delighted and very humbled to say that I made the cut. To be on such a distinguished list is quite an honour!

The full list of candidates below is sorted by the ranking given by the Nominations Committee and shows which seats each candidate is eligible for:

Allen Kinsel US/Canada and Open
Tim Ford US/Canada and Open
Amy Lewis US/Canada and Open
Richard Douglas EMEA and Open
Neil Hambly EMEA and Open
Jen Stirrup EMEA and Open
Ami Levin US/Canada and Open


As a call to action please put aside some time to read each candidates profile page and their associated applications. Each of us will have spent a long time writing and rewriting these and they will help you to choose who you believe will serve you best.

If you are pushed for time, then there are also a number of official PASS campaign events being held on the 23rd and 24th September at 14:00 and 19:00 on both days. The former takes place on Twitter using the #PASSVotes tag and the latter is in the form of Town Hall events. For further details please take a look at the Board of Directors Election Timeline.

If that isn’t enough then you can also post questions on the election discussion forum. Should you wish to ask me anything privately about this or any other matter then please feel free to use my contact form.

Finally, I’d like to take the opportunity to wish everybody involved in the election the best of luck, thank everyone who spent time writing out references, thank the nomination committee for their time and accepting my application and once again reiterate the importance of casting your vote when the ballot opens later this week.
