Dear ISCB Member,
ISCB elections for the Officer positions of Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary are now awaiting your vote online. At the same time and on the same ballot are the elections for all ISCB Student Council leadership positions. Your participation is highly encouraged, as the results of these elections will form the basis of the future direction, and establishment of priorities, for ISCB and its vibrant Student Council.
Please cast your ballot at www.iscb.org/cms_addon/nominate/election/iscb_election/elect.php before the deadline of October 11, 2010. (To ensure you are a current member and that you have not already voted, login to your member account is required. If you are already logged in you can navigate to the "Online Elections" link under the ISCB Users Menu.)
It is important that all members participate in electing our Society's leaders. If you feel you do not know the candidates, please note a full candidate statement and CV is viewable for each member running for each office. Voting can take as little as a few minutes, or as much time as you would like to give it in order to most carefully consider each candidate.
Thank you for your participation,
Dietlnd Gerloff, Chair, ISCB Nominations Committee
