Governing Board Nominations

GB Nominations Process

As a Governing Board member, duties include serving on various standing committees, participating in email discussions and votes, and attending meetings. CSS typically has two meetings a year which GB members must attend, one held the day before the Annual Meeting and a second virtual meeting is held mid-year. 

The Cognitive Science Society is committed to the inclusion of scientists working broadly in the cognitive sciences and welcomes people from diverse disciplinary expertise, gender, race, geographic location, sexual orientation, and disability status. In making nominations, we welcome all applicants that uphold our commitment to scientific merit regardless of background.

This year, we will elect three new Board Members. Each member of the Society may nominate up to two individuals per vacancy for possible inclusion on an election ballot.
