The CMF serves as a venue for ANSI members representing the full spectrum of U.S. industry to examine issues related to national and global standards, as well as conformity assessment developments. The forum provides industry members an opportunity to collectively shape and influence U.S. policy in the domestic and international arena, while bolstering cross-networking and alliances.

The vice chair(s) is/are responsible for assuming duties of the chair in their absence, and such other duties requested from time-to-time by the chair and CMF.

Per the CMF Operating Guidelines, the CMF can have up to two (2) vice chairs. The positions of chair and vice chair(s) serve one-year terms and individuals may not serve more than three consecutive terms. As noted in ANSI's By-Laws, the chairs of the ANSI member forums must meet the criteria for Board membership set forth in Section 3.04.

Interested candidates must furnish the following:

  • A biographical statement setting forth the candidates' relevant qualifications;
  • A letter from a corporate officer stating that the organization will support the candidate in connection with their service on the ANSI Board of Directors and on the Executive Committee of the Board (unless the candidate is a corporate officer).

Nominations for CMF chair or vice chair(s) may be submitted through Friday, August 21, 2020, to Susan Bose, the ANSI CMF staff liaison via email: [email protected]. Self-nominations are welcome.

The chair of the CMF Nominating Committee will work with the committee to consider all potential candidates for the positions identified and to make the appropriate recommendations.
