Click here for description of the Executive Officer and Council Member Positions.

Please submit your nomination(s) by Friday, January 13th.

Council Nominations:

Service on the IASNR Council affords members the opportunity to contribute substantially to current operations and future directions of the organization. Nominees for professional Council positions must have been an IASNR professional member for at least one (1) year prior to the beginning of their term of service; the Student Representative must also have been a student member for at least one (1) year prior to their term of service. IASNR strives for the organizational leadership to be “broadly representative of the membership, reflecting a balance of: (1) disciplinary orientations in the social sciences; (2) natural resource management fields; and (3) professional practice” (e.g., academic, agency, and NGO scientists; resource managers; domestic and international; mid-career and seasoned). Interested individuals must have familiarity with the organization, evidenced by a history of active involvement in conferences and/or other IASNR activities. All IASNR Council positions are unpaid voluntary positions.

Nomination Instructions:

IASNR members may submit one or more nominations for each open position (self-nominations ARE allowed). Nominations must include the following: (1) nominee’s name, title, affiliation, and contact information; and (2) a brief supporting statement (e.g., highlighting past IASNR involvement, describing relevant experience or qualifications). Nominations should be sent by email to [email protected] no later than Friday, January 13th. Please include “IASNR Election Nomination” in the email subject line.

Results and Terms:

Elections will be held in April, with notification of results prior to the 2024 IASNR Conference. Official duties for the Student Representative (a two-year term) will begin June 2024; official duties for professional Council Members (a three-year term) and Executive Officers (a three-year term) will begin the 1st of January 2025, following a six-month transition period as non-voting observer. Note: The ‘service year’ for IASNR Professional Council positions corresponds with the organization’s fiscal operating year, January 1st to December 31st.

Please email the IASNR Office ([email protected]) if you have any questions.
