Call for Nominations: GEMS Board of Directors

In preparation for the GEMS 2006 Fall Meeting (which will be held Thursday October 26, 2006 at the Friday Center at UNC-Chapel Hill, with the topic "Oxidative Damage and Stress"). I am soliciting nominations (or self-nominations) for election to the GEMS Board of Directors. We have four open slots: President-Elect, plus three Councilor positions. I would prefer that we have a strong slate of Candidates for each position!

Please send me your nominations (plus contact information); if you have already been approached/nominated, please email me a brief biographical sketch, preferably by mid-August.

Once we have the slate of candidates plus the biographies, we will hold an online election (ballots via email response).
