Officers and Councilors - Call for Nominations
In accordance with the By-Laws of The Transplantation Society, this letter is to notify you of the impending elections of Officers and Councilors-at-large and to seek nominations to fill the positions being vacated at the
WTC Congress in San Francisco in July 2014. The Council and its Officers are important to TTS’ fulfillment of its strategy and mission. We are therefore seeking nominations of highly qualified and dedicated individuals to ensure the continued success of TTS.
We are also seeking nominations for the Medawar Prize.
TTS Officers and Councilors-at-large
TTS is seeking nominations for three Officer positions that will be vacated in 2014:
In addition, six of the 12 Councilors-at-large will be changing. As the By-Laws of The Transplantation Society specify that “Each region shall be represented by at least one Councilor-at-large, but the number from any one region shall not exceed the proportion of members in good standing from that region in the Society”, the number of Councilors-at-large for each region from 2014 to 2016 will be as follows:
- Asia: 3
- Europe: 2
- Latin America: 2
- Middle-East and Africa: 1
- North America: 3
- Oceania: 1
The number of current Councilors-at-large remaining to 2016 are:
- Asia: 2
- Europe: 1
- Latin America: 1
- North America: 2
Therefore, one nomination is being sought for Councilor-at-large for the 2014–2018 term in each of the six regions.
Full members in good standing may nominate someone for these positions. If you wish to nominate someone, please complete the appropriate linked form. Only Councilors-at-large who are in good standing and who have served at least one full term may be nominated to an Officer position. For the Councilor-at-large position, full members in good standing may be nominated. To nominate someone, the person nominating must also be a full member in good standing.
Since each nominee must have his or her form signed by two other supporting members, the online process allows for efficient and rapid circulation. Members in good standing can access the online nominating form by clicking the following link:
