Dear TIES members,

As you may know, 2021 is an election year for TIES Board member positions.  The following positions are available:

  • President-elect
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Publication officer
  • Communications officer
  • One regional representative for Europe
  • One regional representative for North America
  • One regional representative for global

The elected term for the first five positions is 2021-2023, while for the regional representatives it is 2021-2025. The President-elect becomes President in September 2023 without further election.

We (the TIES 2021 Election Committee) are nominating the candidates listed below this message for these positions, and the elections will take place in May/June (via electronic ballot organised by the ISI).

Additionally, there is now an opportunity for any standing TIES member to nominate additional candidates for any of these positions.

If you would like to nominate any additional candidate(s) – or provide a self-nomination – then please send the details of your proposed nomination to the TIES President at president@environmetrics.org by 31th March 2021.  To nominate a candidate, please provide:

  • Name of nominated candidate (with email proof that they have agreed to be nominated);
  • Brief biographical sketch of the candidate being nominated;
  • Proposed position of nominated candidate (e.g. President-elect, Secretary, etc.);
  • Names and affiliations of five Regular TIES Members who support the nomination.

Please note: candidates being nominated should have been TIES members in both 2020 and 2021 (at least), and nominations for Regional Officers must come from members of the Region.

Best wishes,
The TIES 2021 Election Committee
