general CAST membership. According to the current selection procedure, the Programming
Coordinator is selected from the nominees by the current and recent past CAST 10b Programming
Please note that all nominees must be willing and able to devote the time and effort necessary
to carry out the tasks required by the position. All of the Programming Coordinators for the

basic procedures. Help the other two 10b coordinators as necessary with the organization and
