Executive Board Elections
You may recall that during December/January we organized the annual IVSA Executive Board elections and the following candidates nominations were ratified.
3-year term regular board positions:
- Christine Louveau de la Guigneraye
- Ernesto Noronha
- Jennifer Uribe
3-year term Graduate Student Representative:
- Josh Warren
1-year term regular board position:
- Lakshmi Srinivas
Congratulations to you all!
The new Board will come into effect after the Business Meeting in July. In the interim period, those new to the Board will take up their places as Board Members Elect so that a smooth integration into exercising board responsibilities can be ensured.
In this round of elections, we received zero nominations for the role of Treasurer. So, in the coming weeks we will be holding a special election for that position. Please be on watch for the call for nominations, In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about the Treasurer position or about the work that board members do, please consult our Statement of Board Member Roles and Responsibilities.
This is a trying and confusing time and the Covid epidemic has presented the IVSA with many challenges, which we have responded to well with the help of cooperation and support of our members. Nevertheless, it continues to be difficult. We have not met face to face for two years and the next IVSA conference (2022) will take place after the summer – most likely in September — along with the awards ceremony. The conference will be conducted on-line. Details for both will be published in the coming months.
Please stay tuned.
John Grady, for the IVSA Election Committee
