This year marks the end of the term for four members of our Board of Directors: Stephen Duffull, Jonathan French, Siv Jönsson, and Yusuke Tanigawara. Now, the time has come for you, our membership, to select new Directors, with the goal of cultivating and implementing fresh ideas through their leadership.
A number of well-qualified ISoP members were nominated this year. The following 9 candidates were selected by the Nominations Committee and the Board for your consideration:
- Kevin Dykstra
- Mark Lovern
- So Miyoshi (Asia-based)
- Helen Moore
- Robert C. (Chris) Penland
- Ana Ruiz
- Catherine Sherwin
- Dong-Seok Yim (Asia-based)
- Hao Zhu
You may vote for up to 4 candidates. Please note, however, that one of the open Board seats is designated for an ISoP member based in Asia. We ask that you please vote for at least one of the Asia-based candidates on the ballot; you may freely choose amongst the remaining candidates for the other 3 positions. Upon the final tally of the vote, if one or both Asia-based candidates receive the 4 highest number of votes, the election results will stand. If, however, an Asia-based colleague is not in the top 4 based on number of votes, the Asia-based candidate with the highest number of votes between the two candidates will be elected, along with the three candidates receiving the 3 highest number of votes in the general election. In the event of a tie, the relative candidate ranking by the Nominations Committee will serve as the deciding factor.
Click each name, and please carefully review each of the statements from our candidates so you can make an informed choice.
You will receive a unique link from OpaVote to cast your ballot. Please note that this link is uniquely tied to this survey and your email address. Each ISoP member gets an individualized link, so please do not forward the link.
On January 1, 2021, the 4 newly elected Directors will join our remaining Board members: Sihem Bihorel, Peter Bonate (Treasurer), Brenda Cirincione (President), Vijay Ivaturi, CJ Musante (President-Elect), Heather Vezina, and Justin Wilkins (Past-President).
Please submit your vote by midnight US Eastern time (GMT -4) on Tuesday, September 8, 2020; after this time, the polls will be closed.
Thanks for your continued support and participation.
