Vice-Chair Elections

Each committee will be holding an election for the Vice-Chair position during the Annual Business Meeting. If you are interested in running for a leadership position, be prepared to provide a brief presentation on what you can contribute to the position. A paper ballot will be distributed to elect the winner. The Vice-Chair position ascends to Chair of the respective RAS-ACS Committee the following year. Responsibilities include supporting the work of the committee, attending monthly conference calls, taking minutes or preparing the monthly call agenda, and serving in the role of chair as needed.
