23rd Colloquium - Board of Directors

The Colloquium’s annual Board of Directors Election has two spots open for re-election. The Colloquium is a volunteer led and governed non-profit corporation and Board members do not receive any compensation. If you would like to run for a three-year term on the board, please review the following description of the CISSE Board of Director’s duties and responsibilities.

No longer accepting nominations

Call for nominations ended on May 15th.


Board members are expected to attend two regular meetings per year, one immediately following the Conference in June and one in November. Venues are chosen to minimize travel expenses. Depending upon timing and venue, some funds may be available to defray any otherwise uncompensated expenses associated with the November meeting. The Board may also have one or more remote sessions per year.

In meetings we hear reports of officers and committees and act on proposals submitted in advance. However, most of our work is done in committees between meetings. Directors are expected to serve on one more committees. Committees collaborate electronically (telephone, e-mail, shared cloud, etc.) and Directors can expect to spend several hours per month on Colloquium business. This will include preparing for meetings by reviewing the contents of the meeting folder (call of the meeting, agenda, minutes of the previous meeting, reports, proposals) and publishing their reports and proposals in advance.

With the assistance of the officers and an audit committee, Directors are expected to conserve the assets of the Colloquium and plan, authorize, and review expenditures. While they are ethically responsible to the constituents or members, Directors are protected from financial liability by customary Officers and Directors Insurance. Directors may be authorized from time to time to speak for or otherwise represent the Colloquium, but they are expected to preserve the confidentiality of the Board necessary to its deliberations. Directors are expected to avoid any potential conflict of interest and may be asked to sign an agreement that clarifies this.

To consider serving, please download and return the nomination form by May 15, 2019.

The Colloquium recognizes that the protection of information and infrastructures that are used to create, store, process, and communicate information is vital to business continuity and security. The Colloquium's goal is to work together to define current and emerging requirements for information assurance education and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information assurance curricula, especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
