Call for Nominations for ISDS Board of Directors

Dear ISDS Member, 

During November 2011, there will be an election for three seats on the ISDS Board of Directors. 

To serve as an ISDS board member, you must be a member in good standing of the Society and you must not have a conflict of interest. Board members serve three-year terms, meet monthly by phone and in person at least once a year (although the last couple of years it's been 2-3 times a year). Board members are responsible for governance of the society and provide strategic and fiscal oversight of ISDS activities. Board members also take leadership roles relating to specific committees or areas.  Officers of the Society are elected from within the Board.

If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else for a Board position, or if you have questions about the position, please contact one of the members of the nominating committee (emails are below). Nominations will be accepted until November 10, 2011

The final slate of candidates will be approved by the Board during its November meeting. Candidates will be asked to submit a personal statement that will be distributed to the ISDS membership. Online elections will follow prior to the December conference. The term of newly elected board members begins at the annual conference in Atlanta.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of the nominating committee. 

This year's nominating committee, comprised of the three most recently elected board members, is:


John Brownstein, PhD
Wendy Chapman, PhD
Bill Lober, MD

International Society for Disease Surveillance
2011 ISDS Nominating Committee
