Nomination of the candidate, along with the names of 2 members who support the nomination, can be submitted to the ISCBFM Administrative Office using the nomination link on the Members Only page.  Each member may nominate up to 5 candidates. Please confirm that the candidate accepts the nomination and provide his or her brief biography, which will be published along with the ballots.

We seek to maintain a balanced representation from Asia, Europe, and North America on the Board of Directors. Thus, we encourage members to propose nominees from all 3 geographical groups.

NOMINATION OF OFFICERS:

This year, Dr. Hiroyuki Kinouchi will complete his term as President and our current President Elect, Dr. Joseph LaManna will begin his two-year term as President. Additionally, Dr. Jaroslaw Aronowski will complete his term as Treasurer and our current Treasurer Elect, Dr. Bojana Stefanovic, will begin her term as Treasurer. Nominations for the position of Secretary is NOT needed at this time as the current Secretary (Dr. Nicolas Blondeau) is in the 4th year of his 6-year term.
