Call for Nominations - 2012 Board of Directors

March 2012 will see a radical change to the composition of the ISSFAL Board of Directors as six of the current Board come to the end of their term of office.
Sebastiano Banni, Jan Glatz, Tom Hamazaki, Berthold Koletzko, Maria Makrides and Clemens von Schacky will all be stepping down at that time. Those that have served two terms of office are not eligible for re-election whilst those completing their first term are more than welcome to stand again.
Any member may stand for election as a Board member and those wishing to should read the notes on elections on the ISSFAL website and submit their candidacy statement (maximum 500 words) for posting on the website to me by December 31st this year. Nominations must be supported by three current members of the society, such members to be clearly identified on the candidacy statement.
The election will take place using the electronic voting system at the end of January 2012.
Nominations, or requests for further information, should be addressed to Peter Clough, Honorary Secretary and sent to him by email at
Thank you!
