We want you to know what is going on in the BOD, our meetings, our actions, members leaving, the new ones elected,... but text written in this blog cannot be taken an official position or statement of the Society for Conservation Biology. Probably it is not even an official statement of the section... as these need to be approved by the members.

Board Elections - 5 seats are open. Now the time has come for you to join the BoD or to nominate somebody!

In the upcoming Board of Directors (BoD) elections for the Society for Conservation Biology - Europe Section (SCB-ES) we have 5 seats open for Board Members. Ideally we would like to have two to three candidates for each position with a good balance of nationalities and gender.

We need candidates that are willing and capable to allocate time to the work on the SCB-ES Board. We do not need candidates unwilling to take on SCB-ES tasks on top of their usual workload! Work includes active input to BoD activities and the willingness to chair one of our standing committees. BoD activities also include travel to two BoD meetings per year somewhere in Europe usually in February – October.

If you know of anyone who would be a good candidate for one of these slots (including YOURSELF; self-nominations are quite common) please submit the following form by e-mail to:

Dr. Ozgun Emre Can, emre.can@daad-alumni.de, BoD Member and Nominations Officer, before 15th OCTOBER 2010.

In subject indicate EXACTLY to facilitate my work: "SCB-ES elections"

Please note that the deadline is 15 October 2010.

Best regards,
Ozgun Emre Can, Ph.D.
SCB-ES BoD Member and Nominations Officer

IF YOU NOMINATE SOMEONE APART OF YOURSELF DO IT WITH TIME SO I CAN ASK FOR HIS/HER ACCEPTANCE BEFORE THE DEADLINE.
