Every two years, members of the International Society of Ethnobiology (ISE) are invited to nominate candidates for the Board of the ISE. Members may nominate themselves or another member, as long as that person accepts the nomination in writing. Nominations will be open for the 2016-2018 or 2016-2020 term (depending on the position) as of 1 April 2016 and will close on 1 July 2016.
All members of the Board commit, as volunteers and without remuneration, to a strong consultative role in shaping the direction and continued success of the ISE in its commitment to achieving a greater understanding of the complex relationships that exist within and between human societies and their environments and its support of Indigenous, local and traditional communities.
In 2016, we invite nominations for (i) President-elect (vice president; a 2-year term followed by a 2-year term as President); (ii) Treasurer (a 4-year term); (iii) 6 Regional Representatives, one from each ISE region (Africa, Central and South America and the Caribbean, North America, Asia, Europe, and Oceania and Pacific Islands), and (iv) two student representative(s). Note that while nominations are open for the Student Representative positions, they are appointed by the outgoing Board and not open to vote by membership.
