During the next General Assembly that will be held during our upcoming 8th World Congress of Biomechanics in Dublin, Ireland, we shall have to elect a number of new members to the Council.
Stephen Ferguson completed his two full terms and thus must step down. Hanna Isaksson makes the decision to leave the council for the remaining two years. And finally, Sara Checa, Harry van Lenthe and Markus Heller completed their first term, and intend to stand for reelection.
Hence, five Council seats in total are up for election; the Council thus invites any regular member in good standing to candidate for a seat on the Council of our Society. As our Society considers gender equality as an important aspect in the life of our community, we would particularly encourage women to candidate for these positions. Being an ESB council member is a great opportunity, both socially and professionally, which vastly pays back the effort that such serious commitment requires.
Those who are interested should send their full length CV, complete the application form and attach a small picture, all in electronic format to the Secretary General, firstname.lastname@example.org, by 10th May 2018. Candidates will be posted on the Society web site so that all members can consult them; therefore the information on the application form will be made available to all voting members. Voting will be by an on-line electronic process open prior to the GA. We will send all candidates information about the opening of the ballot at the end of June. The ballot will close during the congress in Dublin, so please make every effort to attend the congress. Candidates with the most number of votes will be presented by the President directly at the forthcoming General Assembly, where the vote will be ratified on July 10th, 2018.
The Council of the European Society of Biomechanics
