UCAR MEMBERS' NOMINATING COMMITTEE
REPORT TO THE UCAR MEMBERS

October 2000

Committee Members:

Paola Malanotte-Rizzoli, Chairwoman
Otis Brown
Arthur Few
Matthew Hitchman
John Merrill
Suzanne Paulson

A. INTRODUCTION

The Nominating Committee met in Boulder on 20 June 2000. The mail survey to solicit suggestions from the Members' Representatives for Trustee and Member committee slates had been conducted and the results were compiled and provided to the Committee in advance of the meeting.

The committee commends the slate presented in this report for your attention.

B. VOTING PROCEDURE

A majority vote of Members' Representatives present (at a meeting at which a quorum is present) is required for election to office. Each Members' Representative has one vote. Votes are cast by ballot.

We recommend conducting the election in accordance with the voting procedure used in the past several years, as follows:

The four candidates receiving the highest majorities will be elected Trustees. If all four positions are filled on the first ballot, the election is complete. If fewer than four Trustees are elected on the first ballot, then the name(s) of those so elected will be removed from the ballot, and an additional ballot or ballots will be taken until all Trustee positions are filled.

C. INSTITUTIONAL TRUSTEES

Three-Year Term Nominees

The Nominating Committee is pleased to submit a slate of six candidates for Institutional Trustees. Four will be elected to serve three-year terms. These nominees have been selected with very careful consideration given to achieving a broad range of backgrounds and experience considered important on the Board. Biographical information as well as nominating statements by the committee members are provided.

Gregory R. Carmichael, University of Iowa
William R. Cotton, Colorado State University
Leo J. Donner, Princeton University
Eugenia Kalnay, University of Maryland
Soroosh Sorooshian, University of Arizona
Gabor Vali, University of Wyoming

D. TRUSTEE-AT-LARGE

There is one Trustee-at-large seat to fill at this election. We are pleased to nominate Patricia A. Woodworth, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at the University of Chicago, for a three-year term on the UCAR Board of Trustees.
