2012 CIRA Board Elections: Nominating Committee did not select me

Once again this year the CIRA Nominating Committee did not select me as one of their candidates for the 2012 CIRA Board of Directors Election. The selected candidates will be published later this week (Thursday).

I did not have high hopes for being selected as this was my third try to get the Nominating Committee’s attention, but I figured it was worth a shot. So what remains is going for the one member-nominated seat.
