Call for 2019 Board of Directors Nominations

The Canadian National Proteomics Network (CNPN) is seeking candidates to serve on its board of directors for a 2-4 year term that will begin in December 2018. CNPN provides a mechanism to advance proteomics-related science in Canada. To this end, it sponsors scientific conferences, seminars and meetings to create a national focus on proteomics. CNPN is structured as a not-for-profit organization with a Board of Directors and Executive Officers. The Officers include a President, Vice-President Internal, Vice-President External, Secretary and a Treasurer. The Officers are elected by the Board of Directors. Collectively, the Board of Directors oversees the actions of the Officers and ensures good governance. Directors meet on a regular basis with the Officers, typically by conference call at a time announced well in advance.

There are at least six open positions on the Board of Directors and CNPN seeks your assistance to nominate suitable candidate(s) to serve as Directors.  Once the nomination period ends on October 31, 2018, there will be a vote open to all members to choose the next Directors.
