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 May 2021. 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 four 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 March 31, 2021, there will be a vote open to all members to choose the next Directors. The selection of the directors will be based on candidates receiving the most votes in an online election.

Nomination process
Candidates must be scientists from the public or private sector with at least three (3) years of professional experience in educational, research or commercial activities related to the purposes of CNPN. This includes principal investigators, research scientists, post-doctoral fellows, lab managers, technicians, members of funding agencies, etc.  At the time of the application, candidates must be members of CNPN.  Interested candidates should provide a biosketch describing a summary of achievements and research interests, training, awards and recognition.  This summary should be limited to 250 words and be suitable for posting on the CNPN website.  In addition, up to five relevant proteomics publications and a link to a website (if applicable) can be listed.  Lastly, append a picture to the application package, which will be posted alongside your nomination on the CNPN website (jpg or png ; please limit size to 200KB).
