The International Zebrafish Society (IZFS), the society that organizes the International Conference on Zebrafish Development and Genetics and the Strategic Conference of Zebrafish Investigators, will be holding board of director (BOD) elections in June 2017. We will be electing officers (President, President-Elect, and Treasurer) and regional directors. Regional representation on the IZFS board is determined by the number of PIs per region who are registered in ZFIN, so we encourage all PIs to register their lab in ZFIN before March 1st. You can find details about BOD positions in the IZFS bylaws.
The Nomination Phase will be open March 1 - 31, 2017. An email will be sent via ZFIN and IZFS soliciting nominations for officers and regional directors. All nominees must be IZFS members to run for election. If you would like to self-nominate or be considered if nominated, please join IZFS before March 1st. If you would like to vote in the election, please join IZFS before May 15th.
