It has been noted that the presidential election season started unusually early. In the government IT community, a big election is already under way. It’s the election for the Industry Advisory Council’s Executive Committee.

During IAC’s membership meeting last week, there was an all-out, get-the-vote effort. Here are the candidates.

For IAC’s executive vice chair:
  • Tom Anderson, Computer Sciences Corp
  • Leslie Steele, InterImage
For the four at-large vice chair positions:
  • Robert Dix, Juniper Networks
  • Maria Horton, EmeSec
  • Charles “Chuck” Mudd, SiloSmashers
  • Andy Robinson, ICF International
  • Pat Schambach, Nortel
  • Sally Turner, CGI
  • Xavier Williams, ATT Government Solutions
The person elected to the executive vice chair post will serve a two-year term beginning July 1. On July 1, 2008, that person will become the new IAC chair.

Voting takes place on IAC’s Web site through the end of the month.
