Call for Board of Trustees Nominations

Thursday, September 14, 2017  
Share |

Dear Members,

As the Immediate Past-President and Chair of the 2017-2018 Nominating Committee, I invite all SCMR members to submit suggestions for nominations to the Board of Trustees for the next election. Our BOT is our voice and gives all of you the opportunity to influence SCMR. It is crucial to have a strong and engaged society to reach our vision.

I would like to cordially thank Tim Albert, Patricia Bandettini, and Reza Nezafat for their time and service to SCMR.  Their terms on the Board of Trustees will conclude at the end of CMR 2018 Joint Meeting in Barcelona.  Their work in different committees helped us a lot to fill our new structures with life. There is no chance to mention all of their efforts, but I want to name at least the effort of Tim in our Clinical Practice Committee, Reza in our Finance Committee, and last but not least, thank Patricia for leading our Level I CMR Workshop effort this year.

The resulting three vacant board positions to be filled are: two U.S. cardiologists, and one U.S. scientist. Elected trustees will serve three-year terms.

Please submit your suggestions for nominees or self-nomination by Friday, October 6th. The nominations must have the nominee’s agreement to run for the position.  Any nomination from the general membership must include signatures of 10 supporting members in good standing and a 250-word biography of the candidate.

Please remember that the members of the SCMR Executive Committee are prohibited from nominating individuals or supporting individual nominations during the annual election process.

Nominations and supporting materials should be sent to SCMR Headquarters on or before Friday, October 6th.

Thank you,

Jeanette Schulz-Menger - SCMR Nominations Committee Chair
