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.

Nominations for the next Board of Directors elections including election of President and President Elect has already started. 
Submit your candidate now!

Dear SCB Europe Section Member,     
The deadline to submit nominations for the next Board of Directors (BOD) elections for the Society for Conservation Biology – Europe Section is fast approaching. Please submit nominations by Friday 31 October. We have five seats that will be opening:     

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.  

The President-Elect shall closely cooperate with the president in section activities, and perform the duties of the President when the latter is absent. Term of office for the President-Elect shall be 3 years followed by 3 years as President.

The President's responsibility is to maintain and improve the visibility and activity of the Section in accordance with SCB strategic foci. The President shall organize and preside over meetings and mailings (including electronic mailings) intended to substitute for meetings, and shall serve as the Section’s voting representative on the Society’s Board of Governors.

If you know of anyone who would be a good candidate for these slots (including YOURSELF; self-nominations are quite common) please submit this SCB Europe Section Call for Board Nominations
