The initial term of appointment is three years with eligibility for re-election to a second term. Members may hold office or serve as vice-chair of a committee or subcommittee during their second term. New members will be recommended by the Nominating Committee, selected in October by the Executive Committee, and then brought before the full CoC membership for approval at the CoC’s Annual Meeting. The ACS Board of Regents will confirm the final list of new members, and the CoC will announce the new members in late October.
