Candidates for the 2013 election were selected by a nominating committee that initially included three section members-at-large: Bodhi Rogers (chair), Jill Linz, and Harold Hastings. An additional, external, member, Jim Owens, was selected by the Executive Director of APS, Kate Kirby. Owens is a past NYS Section chair.
The election slate is given below. The resignation of Jill Linz created another 2 year opening for a member-at-large. Bruce White (SUNY Binghamton) will run for Chair-Elect and Gianfranco Vidali (Syracuse University) will run again for Secretary-Treasurer. There are a total of seven candidates for the seven at-large positions to be filled. Current members Sunil Labroo (SUNY Oneonta), John Noé (SUNY Stony Brook), and Erica Snow (SUNY Fredonia) have agreed to stand for re-election. The new nominees are Carl Ventrice (CNSE Albany), Mike Hennessy (MTECH Laboratory), Ken Podolak (SUNY Plattsburgh), and Natalia Connolly (Hamilton College).
