SRS 2017 Timeline for Elections
Essential characteristics of an SRS Board Member (We appreciate that some of these are hard to quantify)
The SRS will send out a request to membership to nominate or self-nominate SRS members for open elected position(s). The Nominations Committee will consider the nominees, along with any recommendations from members of the committee. The recommendations will then go to the Board of Directors for approval. The SRS President will then contact the nominees to confirm their willingness to run for the position. All SRS members with voting rights will receive a ballot. The candidate with the most votes will be appointed to the position.
The President-Elect is a one year term who will automatically become President for the succeeding two years and ends with a one year term as Immediate Past President. To be considered for the position of President-Elect, individuals must be a member of the SRS, submit a nomination form, which includes a letter of interest/recommendation, a brief CV or NIH-format biosketch (2 pages), signed Board Expectations, digital picture and signed Conflict of Interest Disclosure Policy form.
The Director-at-Large position is a three year term. To be considered for the position of Director-at-Large, individuals must be a member of the SRS and submit a nomination form, which includes a letter of interest, a brief CV or NIH-format biosketch (2 pages), signed Board Expectations, digital picture and a signed Conflict of Interest Disclosure Policy form.
Individuals interested in serving any of these positions must submit the required materials via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 11:59 PM CST, February 13, 2017.
