BioNet is accepting nominations for the two positions on the BioNet Board of Directors up for election:
President Elect: The term of BioNet President is 2 years and is preceded by 1 year as president elect and concludes with 1 year as past president (4 years total). The President presides over all Board meetings, appoints committees/chairs and task forces as needed, and maintains the activities of the BioNet organization in line with current By-Laws. Time commitment: 4-12 hours/month.
Director-at-Large: This is a 3 year term to assist in ideas for speakers for the quarterly meetings or annual symposium, assist President with requested activities. Time commitment: 1-3 hours/month.
We hope to increase our diversity by having people join the board who have not previously been involved with the BioNet administration. We are also hoping to recruit candidates from outside of San Diego, if possible. Please note the nominee must be a BioNet member but not necessarily a member of ABSA .
The BioNet Board of Directors meets each month via a 30 – 60 minute conference call and for 30 minutes or so before each public meeting. There are three 2-hour luncheon meetings that include a 45 minute lecture on a topic of interest and a day-long symposium scheduled for Springtime each year. A potential board member should plan on attending most of the meetings and conference calls. The conference calls are the first Tuesday of each month at 12PM.
The potential nominees will be reviewed by the Nominations Committee and the selected nominees will be announced at the July BioNet member meeting. Elections will follow.
Please let us know if you would like to run or nominate someone you know would like to serve. It is perfectly OK to nominate yourself; many do. If you nominate a colleague, make sure that he or she is willing.
Nominations should be sent to:
