We are grateful to all the candidates who put forward their names for consideration this year. The 2019-20 Nominating Committee selected six candidates for election for four-year terms, and—new this year— two Emerging Professional candidates, who were eligible for a two-year term.⁠ Voters were asked to select four of the six candidates for four-year terms, and one candidate in the Emerging Professional category.
