*** Call for Nominations ***
AMTA Board of Directors
The Association for Machine Translation in the Americas (AMTA)
is soliciting nominations for three (3) upcoming vacancies on
its Board of Directors. The three current Directors, and their
Constituencies are: Jay Marciano (Developers),
Keith J. Miller (Researchers), and Boyan Onyshkevych (Users).
Three new Directors representing the same three constituent groups
are needed to serve a two-year term on the Board, starting as soon
as the elections are complete.
To be eligible, a Director must be an AMTA member in good standing and
must be willing to participate in the activities of the Board.
Typically, communication of Board members takes place electronically
and deals with advisory issues -- e.g. increasing membership --
face-to-face meetings of the Board also take place at conferences. It
desirable to nominate people who are willing to contribute at least
of their time to furthering the goals of AMTA.
You can nominate more than one person, but each nomination should be
a specific type of representative (for researchers, developers, or
users). Before sending in a nomination, please contact your nominee
confirm that (s)he is willing to serve if elected. You can also
yourself for any one of the positions.
The Nomination Committee consists of:
