Dear SCMR Member,
As the Immediate Past-President and Chair of the 2020-2021 Nominating Committee, I invite all SCMR members to submit suggestions for nominations to the Board of Trustees for the next election.
I would like to acknowledge Ron Jacob, Michael Markl and Michael Salerno. Their terms on the Board of Trustees will conclude at the end of the 2021 Annual Scientific Sessions and we thank them for their time and service to SCMR.
The resulting three (3) vacant board positions to be filled are as follows: one (1) U.S. non-physician scientist, two (2) U.S. cardiologists, who will each serve three-year terms.
We will also be electing one (1) Early Career Member to the Board of Trustees (non-voting) to serve a one-year term. The selected candidate will also serve as the Chair of the SCMR Early Career Section. Applicants for this position should be either in training or less than 4 years post-training as of February 2021. There are no specialty or regional criteria.
Former Board members are eligible for nomination at least two years after leaving office. You will find a list of all past and present Board members on the SCMR website.
Nominations must have the nominee’s agreement to run for the position.
Nominations must include:
- Signatures (emails are sufficient) of 10 supporting SCMR members in good standing.
- A 250-word biography of the candidate.
Please submit your suggestions for nominees or self-nomination by Friday, September 18 at 12:00 pm ET. All nominations and supporting material should be sent to SCMR Headquarters at email@example.com.
