Dear IQSA members, affiliates, and friends,
I am writing as the chair of the nominating committee in order to solicit recommendations for suitable persons for leadership positions within IQSA.
It is with great pleasure that I can report that over the past years, based on your recommendations and those of the nominations committee, IQSA has made great steps towards implementing our essential goal of ensuring diversity regarding gender, culture, geographical location and status. We are continuously working in this direction looking for people who are (or are willing to be) actively involved in IQSA works.
It is in light of these considerations that I would like you to submit your recommendations for leadership positions for IQSA (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 30, 2020. Among this year’s positions are president elect and chair of nominating committee. Your suggestions will be treated with utmost discretion and remain anonymous. You can simply suggest names, or perhaps add a few words what motivates your suggestions!
A hybrid slate election will follow this Call for Nominations from November 30—December 10, 2020. All active IQSA members will receive instructions on participating in the coming weeks. Inactive IQSA members can renew lapsed membership at this link.
Thank you for helping to advance IQSA’s mission through your continued support!
Chair, IQSA Nominations
The IQSA Nominations Committee welcomes nominations for several positions. The IQSA Board of Directors needs to appoint a President Elect for 2018. Furthermore, the term of two members of the nominations committee, as well as the first term of two members of the board will expire by the end of 2017. Please see the IQSA bylaws for the description of the roles.
It is crucial that we receive nominations especially for the presidency and the nominations committee. As for the board, we expect the two members who are eligible for a second term to be willing to continue with their stellar work, yet it is crucial that we also receive nominations for these positions in case any new appointments should become necessary.
The Nominations Committee would like to ask all IQSA members to nominate possible candidates for these roles. Please note that the Nominations Committee strives for diversity in professional and academic participation. The consultation and discussion of nominations and submissions is done with great care and will ensure confidentiality.
You must be a paid member to nominate. If you are not a member join today. Please send your nominations to email@example.com by November 10, 2016.
