During their tenure, all elected officials are required to participate in FTGS executive committee meetings at the annual ISA conventions, respond to email communications and contribute to administrative activities. Please see the form below for details of the specific responsibilities of each position and of how to nominate. Completed nomination forms should be emailed to the chair of the nomination committee, Catherine Eschle, by 1 December 2021.

We encourage members to share this call widely and to consider nominating themselves or others. As we are keen to continue to expand the pool of nominations beyond those who are well-established and well-connected within FTGS and ISA, we are open to nominations of those new to, returning to, or considering joining the section. You do not have to be a member to be nominated. We particularly welcome nominations of colleagues from or based in the global south. We also strongly encourage job-share applications for the Program Chair and Section Chair posts. You are welcome to email any member of the nominations committee with informal enquiries about the positions, or the nomination process, or for help with finding a partner to job share.

The nominations and elections committee 2021-22 are: Catherine Eschle (chair), Punam Yadav, Kandida Purnell, Khushi Singh Rathore, Sharmila Parmanand, Huey Fen Cheong and Krystal-Gayle O’Neill.
