Subject: Elections 2000
This memorandum is a follow-up to the announcement about ISRS elections that
appeared in the last issue of Reef Encounter (#26, December 1999).
The ISRS will be holding elections this year, to replace outgoing
officers and members of the ISRS Council. We will be electing a
new Treasurer to replace retiring Treasurer Daphne Fautin and a new
Recording Secretary to replace retiring Recording Secretary Steven
Miller. In addition, we will need to replace the 6 retiring members of
the ISRS Council: Rolf Bak, Gregor Hodgson, Michel Pichon, Don Potts, Paul
Sammarco and Bernard Thomassin. The tenure of each elected postition is 4
years, beginning January 1, 2001. The positions are open only to
members of ISRS.
Nominations should be sent to Rich Aronson at raronson at disl.org and
should consist of the person's name, institution and country; the post for
which s/he is running; and a short statement. The statement should be one
paragraph about the person's qualifications for the position (a brief
history of the candidate's involvement in coral reef work) and objectives
while in that position (how the candidate would envision working to the
benefit of ISRS). Also required by the Society's bylaws is a statement of
disclosure of any financial arrangements the candidate may have with any
publisher of scientific literature.
Self-nominations are welcome. If you wish to nominate someone else,
please be sure that person actually agrees to run!
DEADLINE: In order for nominations to be printed in the July 2000 issue of
Reef Encounter, they must be sent to the Corresponding Secretary on or
before April 26, 2000. A ballot will be mailed to each member of ISRS in
September. The results of the election will be announceed at the 9th
International Coral Reef Symposium in Bali in October.
This announcement will also appear on the ISRS web site. If you are
not already an ISRS member, please consider joining; information on
