2023 Council Election-Slate of Candidates
The Nominations and Elections Committee is pleased to announce the official slate of candidates for the 2023 Council election. HUPO thanks all candidates who are willing to stand on Council for a three-year term beginning in January 2024 (2024-2026). The election period is August 19 to September 18, 2023.
Again this year, the vote is conducted online. On August 19, 2023, 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 (Western, Central, Eastern) 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 Western region submitted two diversity candidate so their remaining three Council seats will be filled by the general election. The Central and Eastern regions did not submit any diversity candidates, so their five Council seats (for each region) will be filled by the general election.
The slate of candidates is now available through the links below.
