Candidates Sought to run for office of President of IAMSLIC

To our IAMSLIC Membership:


I have been tasked as Chair of the Nominating Committee for IAMSLIC, to come up with at least two nominees willing to run for the office of President of IAMSLIC.  This is really a four year commitment:


Duties of the IAMSLIC President:

Junior President-Elect (2009): Voting member of Executive Board and
responsible for coordinating Executive board web page updates with the
web committee.   This meeting will be held in Belgium

President-Elect (2010): Voting member of Executive Board and
conference convener. This meeting will occur in Latin America.

President (2011): Runs Executive Board and business meetings,
manages IAMSLIC committee appointments and oversees IAMSLIC business.
Acts as grant administration for IAMSLIC grant cycles.   This meeting will be held in Africa

Past-President (2012): Serves on the Executive Board in a
non-voting advisory capacity and may chair the Bylaws Committee. This meeting will likely be held in the U.S.A.

The IAMSLIC bylaws allow for a conference registration waiver for the
year the candidate serves as President and a minimal amount of travel
support for IAMSLIC elected officers, but candidates should also have
the support (programmatically and hopefully financially as well) of
their institution when they commit to run and we do ask for written
acceptance from candidates who have agreed to stand for office.

We would love to hear from you either to nominate yourself, or with the names of candidates you think would make a good President and be willing to serve.  Our Committee members are:

Natalie Wiest <> <>, Chair
Marcel Brannemann <>
<> (Euraslic- 2010)
Andrea Cristiani <> <> (Latin
America- 2009)
Ann Devenish <> <>
(Unaffiliated 2009)
Meredith Hepburn <
<> (PIRG- 2010)
Pam Olson < > <mailto: >
(Cyamus- 2009)
Amady Sow <> <>
(Afriamslic- 2010)

Thank you!
