Officers meet monthly via zoom and the full council (Officers and Councillors) meet quarterly via zoom. All Officers and Councillors have the opportunity to join committees (i.e., Awards committee, Education committee, Communication committee, Conservation committee, and the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee), propose new initiatives, and be involved in decisions about how the Society functions. ICRS Officers and Councillors contribute to the ICRS vision and ensure ICRS remains a global leader in coral reef scientific discovery, education, and a strong voice for science-informed policies that protect our coral reefs for future generations. If you would like more information please contact one or more of the current officers or council, details of whom may be found on the Society's website at: https://coralreefs.org/about-icrs/officers-and-councilors/<http://icrs.memberclicks.net/message2/link/92282a44-850a-40c4-9b36-fcfef619d743/5>.
ICRS recognizes the diversity of our members and the strength it provides to our organization. We strongly encourage applicants from all countries, identities, backgrounds, and career stages to consider being nominated or self-nominating themselves for one of the positions.
Dr. Michael Sweet, ICRS Corresponding Secretary
