Board of Directors (BoD)
The BoD consists of seven researchers and should broadly represent the diversity of the field with respect to data science sub-fields, institutions, geography, gender, and background.
The Chair and Vice-Chair are fixed for the entire grant period (5.5 years). The other five BoD members are initially appointed for a period of 2.5 years, after which new members are appointed for the next 3 years by the BoD based on a community-driven nomination process. BoD members can be re-elected for another term but no more than 50% of the five rotating seats can be filled with re-appointed BoD members.
