Notice of Election for FAOBMB Education Chair

Dear FAOBMB Council member,

 

The second term of Ms Siok Im Koh as Chair of the FAOBMB Education Committee will expire on 31 December, 2017. She served from 1 January 2012 for the first of two possible three-year terms, and then was re-elected for a second term from 1 January 2015.

The election of Chair of the FAOBMB Education Committee is a very important duty of Council. The role of Chair of the Education Committee is critical to the management and leadership of educational developments in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the FAOBMB region, including coordinating with the local organizer of each of the annual FAOBMB Congresses and Conferences to arrange the Education Symposium at those events (in liaison with IUBMB) and also to assist more generally with developing education and training in the FAOBMB region. The position also entails working closely with other members of the Executive Committee on these and other matters of significance to the management and development of FAOBMB.

 

In accordance with FAOBMB Rule 52 (pasted below), I am writing to give you the opportunity to make a nomination for Chair of the FAOBMB Education Committee.

After completion, please send me PDF files of the nomination form and biographical sketch (or scan in the signed nomination form and biographical sketch) and email them to me by the due date 24 July 2017.
