Call for Nominations for Two “Members At-Large” Positions on the ISfTE Executive Board – serving for a three-year period

Dear ISfTE Members,

In accordance with the Constitution of ISfTE, the Secretary-General has created an election committee for the purposes of electing two at-large members to the ISfTE Executive Board.  These new members will serve a three-year term.  In this way, the board will move forward in a manner that rotates older and newer members on the board.

All current and former members of ISfTE are invited to nominate themselves or an ISfTE colleague to do this important work for the society. The election committee and the current executive board particularly want to encourage members from places in the world that are not represented on the current board; although, people from those areas are certainly invited to run for election as well.

If elected and not a current member (did not attend the 2018 seminar in Japan or pay the separate membership fee), it is expected that the new board member would pay the $75 membership fee.  It is also expected that the newly elected board members attend the annual executive board meetings which take place the day prior to the beginning of the annual seminar (Canada, 2019).

Please send the nomination of yourself or a colleague to Karen Bjerg Petersen, chair of the election committee at kp@edu.au.dk. She will ask candidates for a short statement about their association with ISfTE and what they hope to contribute to the board.  Nominations are due by Friday, September 7, 2018. Elections will take place shortly thereafter.

Election Committee: Karen Bjerg Petersen, Ingebjørg Aarek, Anne Merete Selvik Ask and Peggy Saunders
