I have thirteen years of experience on the IEEE CS Board of Governors, two years as an officer, over 25 years of IEEE CS conference involvement, and 20 years of IEEE Publications experience that positions me with Computer Society working knowledge, its strengths, and challenges. I also have IEEE experience in products and services, membership, task forces, and ethics and membership conduct. I also have experience from being on the CRA Board, ACM SIGGRAPH Conference Committee, Conference Steering Committee, and Executive Committee, and the Academic Alliance of Data Science and Analytics Conference committee, which provides additional frames of reference to CS challenges. 

I understand the current and future needs of our diverse membership since I am actively involved in academic and research communities, as well as IT startups, while being engaged with IT professionals in government and industry through my visual analytics research and transition work. As a Vice President, I’ll actively work for fiscally sustainable growth and innovation in products, membership, and professional education to ensure that we bring value to our membership, impact society, and help support the growth of our field.
