Call for nominations for the WoRMS Steering Committee

Added on 2014-01-15 14:03:46 by Vendepitte, Leen
During the Steering Committee meeting of December 2012, it was decided that each year, a number of Steering Committee positions would be opened for new nominations. This provides both stability and a certain rotation in the membership.
We are hereby launching a call for nominations for SC members. Two positions are open for elections: the ones from Sabine Stöhr (editor of the Ophiuroidea) and Chad Walter (editor of Branchiura & Copepoda).
A complete overview of the current Steering Committee members is available on the website:

For the nominations, the following rules and guidelines apply:

  • Each editor has 1 vote and can nominate another editor to be part of the SC
  • Self-nominations are accepted
  • Each candidate will need to list one or more tasks that he or she is willing to take up during the SC membership period
  • Elections are open to all editors, both taxonomic and thematic
  • The current SC members with vacant positions, can be re-elected
  • Any mandate within the SC will be for a period of 3 years
  • If there would be more nominations than available places, an election-round will be organized by the data management team

All nominations should be sent to, before February 11th 2014.
If there would be any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
