Nominees by Petition Sought for CRA Board


The Computing Research Association seeks your help in suggesting nominations for its Board of Directors. We seek individuals who have time, energy, initiative, and resources to work on CRA issues on behalf of the entire CRA community. Ours is a working board, and all members are expected to work on community issues.

CRA Board Update


CRA has four new board members: David Culler (UC Berkeley), Eric de Sturler (Virginia Tech), David Ebert (Purdue), and Lise Getoor (UC Santa Cruz). Culler replaces Jim Kurose, who stepped down to become CISE AD, de Sturler replaces Robert Schreiber as the SIAM representative, Ebert replaces David Bader as the IEEE-CS representative, and Getoor replaces Henry Kautz as the AAAI representative. CRA thanks Bader, Kautz, Kurose and Schreiber for contributions during their service on the board.

New Board Member Nominations


The Computing Research Association seeks your help in suggesting nominations for its Board of Directors. We seek individuals who have time, energy, initiative, and resources to work on CRA issues on behalf of the entire CRA community. Ours is a working board, and all members are expected to do a fair share of the work. The 32 member Board provides the membership for various standing committees, including the Communications, Government Affairs, Snowbird Conference, Taulbee Survey, Finance, and Elections committees. In addition, issues affecting computing research arise unexpectedly and Board members must take the initiative and lead CRA’s responses. Many CRA committees and initiatives involve year-round attention, regular conference calls, communications with lab directors and department chairs, proposal writing, and sometimes travel at the expense of the individual Board members.
