ISCB Call for Leadership Nominations
The Nomination Period for officers is now open!
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) is encouraging members to submit nominations for the Society's Officer positions of President-elect and Vice President; Board of Directors; and the Student Council Leadership positions of Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and Representative to the ISCB Board. Nominations are submitted at www.iscb.org/nominate (you must login to your membership record to access the nomination form). In all cases, self-nominations will not be accepted.
If you know of excellent candidates that meet the eligibility requirements below, please be sure to submit your nomination(s). Details of the positions, procedures and timeline are available on the ISCB website at: http://www.iscb.org/leadership-nominations-and-elections.
In order to be eligible to be an Officer candidate, a person must be an ISCB member in good standing, must have served as a Director for at least one (1) year at any time during the history of the Society leading up to the start date of becoming an Officer (first term Board members, therefore, meet the eligibility requirements for election to an Officer position), and be willing to perform the duties as stated in the Executive Officer Responsibilities. He/she must pledge to make every reasonable effort to attend the weekly Executive Committee teleconferences, the bi-monthly Board of Director teleconferences, and, at their own expense, the face-to-face Annual Board Meeting held in conjunction with the ISMB conference.
