During the next General Assembly that will be held during our upcoming 7th World Congress on Biomechanics July 6 – 11, 2014, Boston (USA), we shall have to elect a number of new members to the Council.
Hans Van Oosterwyck and Peter Zioupos completed their two full terms, and thus must step down. Stephen J. Ferguson completes his first term, and intends to stand for reelection. Anita Ignatius also completes her first term, but intends not to stand for reelection.
Hence, four 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, a 200-word biography, and a small picture, all in electronic format to the Secretary General firstname.lastname@example.org by 16th May 2014. Candidates will be posted on the Society web site so that all members can consult them. Candidates will also be presented by the President directly before the election ballot at the forthcoming General Assembly to be held in Boston on July 8th, 2014.
Secretary- General of the European Society of Biomechanics
