I have twelve years of experience working on the IEEE CS Board of Governors, two years as an officer, over 25 years of IEEE CS conference involvement, and 19 years of IEEE Publications experience that positions me to have a thorough working knowledge of the Computer Society, its strengths, and challenges. I have a good understanding of 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. I also have experience from being on the ACM SIGGRAPH Conference Committee, Conference Steering Committee, and the ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee which provides an additional frame of reference in understanding CS challenges. As a Vice President, I'll actively work for fiscally sustainable growth and innovation in products, membership, and professional education.
