Leadership Opportunity - IGFS Board of Directors
Application Deadline is August 31, 2017

Dear IGFS Members,

During the upcoming annual meeting the IGFS will have elections and a transition of officers. According to our Bylaws, the term in office for officers of the organization and elections for the Board of Directors take place every 2 years.

In preparation for the elections the IGFS is soliciting volunteers who are interested in serving on the Board. The Board meets via web conference every quarter and meets face to face at any regularly scheduled meetings of the organization. I have listed the current directory of the Board of Directors below.

We are accepting volunteers for At Large and Officer positions. If you are interested in applying to serve on the Board, we will request a copy of your CV and a short statement on your desire to get involved in the leadership of the IGFS.Those materials should be sent to me via email by the deadline for nominations, August 31st.

The Nominating Committee will create a final proposed slate that will be presented to the membership for consideration during the annual meeting in San Diego on October 7th.

Thank you very much for your consideration and please let me know if you have any questions.
