Only two weeks to go...

The International Society for Reef Studies will be holding elections this year to replace three outgoing officers (President, Vice-President and Corresponding Secretary) and six members of the ISRS Council.  The tenure of each elected position is 4 years, beginning January 1, 2011.  These positions are open only to ISRS members.

Nominations should be sent to the Corresponding Secretary, Isabelle Côté, by post or fax, or as an email attachment.  Nominations submitted as text of an email message must be confirmed by one of the above methods.  Each nomination 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, in the third person, about the candidate'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 envisions 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 other than yourself, please ask that person to mail, fax or email me a confirmation of his/her willingness to run for the office.

The deadline for receipt of nominations is 21 June.  The biographical sketches of all the candidates will be posted on the ISRS web site, http://www.coralreefs.org, from 21 June until the day after the election.  Voting will be by email in September (date and details to follow). The results of the election will be announced by email and on the Society’s website in October.
