The SRNT-E senior management team consists of elected members. Each year positions become available.
Each year two vacancies arise for SRNT-E Board members. A call for nominations is sent to all SRNT-E members in the Spring.
SRNT-E is currently looking for new nominations. For the 2020-2021 board, we invite nominations for the posts of:
- Communications Officer
SRNT-E is a diverse organisation. When making nominations, please consider colleagues with a broad range of scientific interests (e.g., molecular, behavioural, clinical, epi, policy) and from diverse geographical/cultural backgrounds.
The term of office for President-Elect is one year, followed by one year as President and one year as Immediate Past President (three years total). The Communications Officer also serves a 3-year term. The candidates elected will begin their term at the conclusion of the Sept 2020 SRNT-E Annual Meeting.
Successful candidates are expected to be actively involved in SRNT-E, help advance SRNT-E’s strategic initiatives, attend annual meetings during their tenure, participate in monthly teleconference calls, and be available by email for issues that arise between Board meetings.
All current members of SRNT-E are encouraged to nominate individuals for the positions. Full members of SRNT-E may self-nominate within the above restrictions and only full members are eligible to hold office. As per SRNT-E Bylaws, student and associate members are not eligible to vote or hold elected office.
The election is held in the Summer, for which more information will follow. Successful candidates will be notified in August and will officially join the Board at the SRNT-E Annual General Meeting at the conference in September.
Nominations must include the following:
- candidate's contact information
- confirmation of the candidate's willingness to serve if elected
- biographical and disclosure statement
- one letter of recommendation from a current SRNT-E member
- vision statement (for role of President-elect only)
