ISTSS 2006 Election: Nominations by Petition Due July 21

Each year ISTSS conducts an election for board members and a president-elect. The ISTSS Nominating Committee, chaired by board mem­ber and Past President Barbara Rothbaum, PhD, has nominated the individuals listed below. Additional nominations may be made by peti­tion. For each petition nomination, submit one sheet of paper containing 16 original signatures of ISTSS mem­bers. These submissions are due at headquarters by Friday, July 21, 2006.

Note that, with the exception of the president, individuals are typi­cally limited to two consecutive terms on the board. This year, ISTSS mem­bers will elect four board members to serve three-year terms and one board member to serve a four-year term beginning November 2006. The four-year terms shall be awarded on the basis of highest number of votes received in the annual election. Members also will elect a president-elect, who will assume the office of ISTSS president in November 2006.
