Disclaimer...

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 - Call for Nominations is open until 29th October


We invite you to submit nominations for the next Board of Directors (BOD) elections for the Society for Conservation Biology – Europe Section.  We have 1 seat that will be opening:    

BOARD MEMBER

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.

Board Members duties include active input to BoD activities and the willingness to chair one of our standing committees.  We particularly seek for persons interested in conservation education and/or policy. BoD activities also include travel to two BoD meetings per year somewhere in Europe usually in February and October. 

If you know of anyone who would be a good candidate for these slots (including YOURSELF; self-nominations are quite common) please submit the following form by e-mail to:   
                
Mikko Mönkkönen, mikko.monkkonen@jyu.fi, BoD Member and Nominations Officer.
            
In subject indicate EXACTLY to facilitate my work:
