Call for Nominations to Serve on the 2019 Board of Directors

The 2018 Board Nomination Form is now closed. Nominations were due Monday, April 16, at 11:59 pm U.S. Eastern Time.

ASHG was accepting nominations for its 2019 Board of Directors. We welcomed your thoughtful consideration of nominees who are not only accomplished genetics professionals, but also are willing to give their time and effort to promote the Society and its goals among members, policymakers, and the broader genetics community. Self-nominations were encouraged. 

Please note: ASHG is transitioning to a new system for its nomination-based forms. To submit a nomination, you will need to create a new account using the link in the left-hand menu of the home page. This is distinct from the username and password used for the ASHG Web Portal and membership form. These accounts will be integrated in the future.

We were looking to fill the following vacancies:

  • President (1 vacancy): The President will serve a one-year term as President-Elect (2019), a one-year term as President (2020), and a one-year term as Past President (2021). 
  • Directors (3 vacancies): Directors will serve a three-year term from January 2019 through December 2021.

Trainee and Early-Career positions will be available in 2020.

Only ASHG members in good standing can be nominated. Nominations must include the nominee’s NIH biosketch and cover letter. Current ASHG Board membersPast Presidents, and members of the Nominating Committee are not eligible for nomination. 

After the submission deadline, the Nominating Committee will review all nominations and will determine the final ballot in accordance with the ASHG Bylaws.
