Nomination deadline 4 December
Dear ASLO Members,
This year we are seeking candidates for President-elect and Member-at-large. The Nominations Committee needs your nominations by December 4, 2015 so that we may assemble a full slate. Please go to this site to nominate any ASLO member:
Also, the ASLO bylaws permit members to bypass the Nominations Committee and place nominees directly on the ballot via a petition signed by 30 ASLO members. Such petitions should be sent to John Downing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current board members are also eligible for nomination for a second consecutive term if nominated by an ASLO member. Note that current board members may not make nominations.
We try to keep the board balanced in gender, limnology/oceanography, geographic distribution, etc. The composition of the board can be seen here:
Early career nominees and colleagues from backgrounds underrepresented in the aquatic sciences are particularly welcome.
Expertise needed on the Board over the next years will include publications, innovative meeting approaches, social media, and public engagement.
Previous leadership experience is always helpful (but not necessary).
Please nominate yourself or any other ASLO member – service on the ASLO board is rewarding and valuable, a great way to network while contributing to the health of our discipline. Nominations will be discussed by the ASLO Nominations Committee in the next few weeks so please act soon!
John A. Downing
(Past-president and non-voting Nominations Committee Chair)
