2021 Council Election
The Nominations and Elections Committee is pleased to announce the official slate of candidates for the 2021 Council election. HUPO thanks all candidates who are willing to stand on Council for a three-year term beginning in 2022 (2022-2024). The election period for is October 18 - November 14, 2021.
Again this year, the vote is conducted online. On October 18, HUPO members will receive an email containing a secure election ID code. Electors simply click on the link provided and cast their anonymous votes.
Each region (Eastern, Central, Western) has been asked to nominate two (2) candidates to be considered for diversity positions on the HUPO Council. Diversity candidates are nominated by the national/regional proteomics societies with the understanding that the selections should increase the diversity of the Council from each region (examples: less represented countries as defined by HUPO membership, gender balance, young scientists, agricultural and micro-organism proteomic, industry). There is a block vote for diversity candidates with 'accept' or 'not accept' as part of the election process. This year the Central region submitted one diversity candidate so their remaining four slots will be filled by the general election. The Eastern and Western regions each submitted two diversity candidates so their remaining three slots will be filled by the general election.
The slate of candidates is now available.
