No ballots will be accepted after this point.
A minimum number of nominations is required in order for one to appear on the ballot. Those minimums shall be five for President-Elect, three for Secretary-Treasurer-Elect, and three for Executive Council Member-at-Large-Elect.
For President-Elect and for Secretary-Treasurer-Elect, the three persons who receive the greatest number of nominating votes will appear on the ballot. For the two at-large Executive Council positions, the six persons who received the greatest number of nominating votes will appear on the ballot.
Members who have any barrier related to the use of an online form for the purpose of submission of nominations for elected office should contact HFES Executive Director Steven Kemp for accommodation.
Per the Bylaws and Operating Rules of the Society:
Individual members of the Society are entitled to express support of candidates, including themselves, through direct contact, telephone, letter, or other means of personal communication. Use of Society resources, such as Community forums, is not permitted, in order to keep a level playing field.
If a member holding any Society office engages in personal advocacy for nominations or elections, that person should be careful to emphasize that their recommendations are made as an individual member and should ensure that any campaign activities are not paid for with Society funds or use Society resources. Associate, Affiliate, Early-Career Associate, and Student Affiliate members of the Society are not eligible to nominate or to hold office.
Your Participation is Vital to the Society.
Please Nominate and Vote!
