Call for Board candidates



In September 2015, the second term of two of the EAOG Board members (Lorenz Schwark and Philippe Schaeffer) will end and, as they are not eligible for re-election, new members have to be elected. The Board will nominate two candidates for the open positions, but in accordance with the Articles of EAOG, other candidates can also stand for election, providing their nomination is supported by seven EAOG members and includes a declaration by the candidate that she or he is prepared to serve as a member of the Board. The candidate should also supply a short biography and, optionally, a short election address, both together not exceeding one page.

In case of nominations in addition to those from the Board, the established procedure requires that election of the Board members be by ballot of the EAOG membership. Ballot forms will be sent by email during June 2015, and will also be available on the website. Members not receiving a ballot form should contact the Secretary. The results will be made public at the EAOG General Assembly in Prague in September 2015. Election of new Board members will be for four years, with re-election being possible once.

If there are no additional nominations to those of the Board, there will be no ballot, and the Board’s nominees will be elected during the General Assembly.

Nominations must be received by the EAOG secretary not later than 31st May 2015 at the following address (preferably by e-mail):
Dr Philippe Schaeffer
Laboratoire de Biogéochimie Moléculaire,
Institut de Chimie de Strasbourg, Université de Strasbourg
Ecole de Chimie, Polymères et Matériaux
25 rue Becquerel
