* Asterisks indicate current council members who will not be eligible for re-election at the end of their current terms. Professional & Scientific Council by-laws limit representatives to two consecutive elected terms on the council. Former council members can run again after sitting out one election.

Need a substitute for a council meeting? The Representation Committee maintains a list of P&S Staff willing to attend Council meetings when elected representatives are unable to attend.
