Call for Nominations

We are seeking nominations for open positions in the Optica Fall Vision Meeting Planning Committee. The committee consists of ten members: Committee Chair, Committee Chair-Elect, and topical Chairs and Chairs-Elect who represent each of Optica’s four color and vision technical groups: Applications of Visual Science, Clinical Vision Sciences, Color, and Vision. The current Optica Fall Vision Meeting Planning Committee membership is listed on this page, along with esteemed members of our community who have served in past years.

Normally the term for chair-elect is 2 years with the expectation that the chair-elect will move into the chair position for another 2 years, with a total commitment of 4 years. This year, one of the positions (Color) will have an initial term of just one year and thus a total commitment of three years.

Virtual meetings occur approximately once each month, and more frequently in the weeks before the Fall Vision Meeting, and regular attendance is expected. Much of the organizational work is conducted using Slack, Google Docs, and Zoom. Attendance at the Fall Vision Meeting is expected as well.

The following positions will have openings starting in January, 2023:

  • Chair-elect for Clinical Vision Sciences (4 years, ending Dec 2026)

  • Chair-elect for Color (3 years, ending Dec 2025)

  • Chair-elect for Vision (4 years, ending Dec 2026)

If you would like to put your name forward for consideration, please make a copy of this template slide, enter your information, and forward a file or a link to with the subject line “Fall Vision Meeting Planning Committee Nomination”. PowerPoint, PDF, and the native Google Slides formats are acceptable. Voting will occur during the business meeting of Optica Fall Vision Meeting.
