The North America Section of the Society for Conservation Biology is excited to announce the start of its 2022 Board Special Election for the President Elect position! The election ballot will close on Monday, November 7th.
The President Elect position is a critical role on the SCBNA Board, as the first in the ‘President-series’ – a 6-year total commitment: 2 as President-Elect, 2 as President, 2 as Past-President. The President-Elect serves on the Executive Committee of the SCBNA Board, chairs the Conference Committee, and provides support for the President, including filling in as needed.
Even though there is only one excellent candidate running for President Elect, we still need SCBNA members to vote! Thank you for voting in this important election!
