Hello RosEXEC Community!


I wanted to send along a reminder for those that have not yet voted – to please vote for our new members. The link to the voting page is: https://tinyurl.com/yaloxev3.


Voting is open until December 11th.

We are electing 5 domestic candidates, and 2 international candidates.


I am also soliciting nominations (self- or otherwise) for secretary (2018), which transitions over the next two years into the chair position in year 3 (2020).  


All new, ongoing, and rotating-off U.S. members are eligible to become Secretary candidates, except for the current officers (Ksenija, Chris and Mercy). However, all of you receiving this email may vote, except ex officio Dorrie. As a reminder, the Secretary for 2018 automatically becomes Vice-Chair for 2019 and then Chair for 2020. The 2018 Secretary is also responsible for taking minutes of RosEXEC during 2018, including the in-person meeting in San Diego (although if the Sec is not in attendance, we’ll find an alternative).


Thanks so much, and Happy Holidays!
