It is that time of the year when we are seeking nominations for RosEXEC for 2017. Before official call for nominations are sent we need to decide on international liaison (IL) representation. During our January meeting in San Diego, D. Change suggested that Asia should be better represented (see the minutes for more detail). There are few suggestions how to handle the IL and I would appreciate you vote for one of them:
1. Leave as is - 2. Add a new position and fill that with an Asian representative (hopefully) 3. Dedicate IL positions to different areas a. South America, Southern Hemisphere, Asia, Europe?
If we choose option 2 or 3 we will need to change the bylaws to reflect this change and state when the change becomes effective.
So please send me your votes by Friday 9/2. Depending on the final vote I will send the call for nominations on Monday 9/5/2016 with the hope that the nomination process can be accomplished by the end of September and voting by the next phone conference in October.
