I am writing to ask you to consider nominating individuals for membership of the BSDB committee. Due to committee retirements, three new individuals are needed to serve as ordinary committee members, beginning in October 2018. Their term of office will be five years and they will be required to (make every attempt to) attend two committee meetings per year.
All nominations must be proposed by a member of the BSDB, and seconded by another member, and must also be accompanied by a statement from the nominee that they are willing to serve if elected. The nominee has to already be a member of the BSDB.
Please send your nominations to me ASAP and by Friday 2 March 2018 at the latest.
In the event of a vote being required to decide between >2 candidates, the election will take place at this year’s BSDB AGM, which will be held during the BSDB Spring Meeting 2018 in Warwick (15th – 18th April, 2017). If there is an election, I will require someone, preferably the proposer or seconder, to give a short verbal statement of support of their nominee.
The BSDB committee also invites self-nominations for a new post graduate representative and a new post doctoral representative. Please, include a short text (max. 1 page) explaining your motivation and intentions to serve on the committee. Deadline will also be Friday 2nd March 2018 .
Please email these to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
