Dear SMBE Members,
I am writing to solicit nominations for SMBE President-Elect and 2 Councillors whose terms will begin on January 1, 2022. All of these positions are for a duration of three years.
As the society grows and thrives, council members play very important roles in guiding its development and in soliciting and implementing programs that support our members, while enriching opportunities for young scientists from around the world, and overseeing our two excellent journals (MBE and GBE) as well as our annual meeting and satellite meetings.
Nominations will be reviewed by the nomination committee* who will then put forward a slate of two candidates for each position for membership vote. Past and current council members are listed HERE.
Please send nominations with a brief statement in support of your suggestion (self nominations are accepted) Juliette de Meaux <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Nadia Singh <email@example.com>.
*Nota bene: we ask the nominators to confirm explicitly that the person they are nominating has already confirmed their willingness to run for office.
Please send your nominations by Friday, April 09, 2021.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Secretary of SMBE, on behalf of the Nomination Committee*
