Member-at-Large (2 elected)
[Note: The CCS ballot incorrectly stated that one member-at-large should be elected. In fact, two members-at-large are elected each year for the CCS Executive Committee. After conferring with the ALCTS Executive Committee, the chair and chair-elect of CCS, and the chair of the CCS Nominating Committee, it was decided to award the second member-at-large position to the candidate with the second highest vote total. This was decided as the best option from several suggested. We apologize for this error.]
