ASM 2017 Ballot will close on February 24th
at midnight Eastern Time!
SEE WHO'S RUNNING
Briefly, the BOD is the governance body that sets the course for the whole Society by fulfilling all fiduciary roles, including approval of the budget.
The COMS will be the main advisory body to the BOD and will make recommendations for the strategic, scientific, and programmatic direction of the Society. Both bodies will serve key roles in the microbial sciences by providing leadership and direction to the Society and to the whole field.
IS YOUR MEMBERSHIP UP-TO-DATE?
If you have not renewed your membership for 2017, please renew today. Only current ASM members may vote in this election.
It is worth noticing that there will be one slot on the BOD and one slot on COMS for a young microbial scientist, someone who is at the level of Graduate Student, Postdoc, Assistant Professor, or junior clinical microbiologist or equivalent. There will also be one slot on the BOD, and two slots on COMS, for members working outside of the US.
