ISB Now

Call for ISB Executive Nominations

Posted on December 22, 2014

Have you ever considered becoming a more active participant within the biomechanics community and serving on the ISB Executive Council?

An Executive Council, which is composed of Officers and Council members who are elected for 2-year terms, governs the ISB. The Council, which meets face-to-face annually, provides leadership to ensure continued development of the Society.  We strive to ensure that the Council includes members who represent a diverse range of countries and regions, as well as a variety of scientific areas within biomechanics.  Council members can be re-elected twice, for a total maximal period of six years.  The 2015-2017 council will have Andy Cresswell as President.

Profiles of individuals standing for office will be featured in the March 2015 ISB NOW, and election of the Executive Members will follow shortly thereafter. If you would like to be considered for possible inclusion on the ballot for the 2015-2017 ISB Executive Council, or if you would like to nominate somebody, please submit:

  • A recent photo (head and shoulders only), and
  • A short bio-sketch including a statement as to why you (or the person you nominate) would like to serve on the ISB Executive Council (200 words maximum)

Please send the photo and bio-sketch or nominations directly to me via email: a.vandenbogert@csuohio.edu.

Deadline for application/nomination is February 1st, 2015.

Serving on the ISB Executive Council is an extremely rewarding experience and has been one of the highlights of my career.  It provides you with a thorough understanding of what the ISB and biomechanics worldwide is all about, and an opportunity to help shape the future of our field and our scientific community.

Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions regarding the ISB Executive Council.

Ton van den Bogert

Past President
