Dear Colleague;

I am pleased (finally) to be able to open this year's election for the Society for Freshwater Science President (to serve in 2013-2014), and two new Delegates to serve on the Board of Directors. For the first time members will select representatives from the academic employment and early career demographic sectors in addition to a president elect. The delegates will each serve three year terms, and will replace the presidential appointments, who previously served on the Executive Committee. (Next year delegates representing the non-academic employment sector and the International geographic sector will be elected.)

Candidates this year include:

• President: Dr. Sherri Johnson & Dr. Randy Fuller
• Academic Sector: Dr. Al Steinman & Dr. Caryn Vaughn
• Early Career: Dr. Michelle Greenwood & Dr. David Costello

On the ballot site we have provided a biographical sketch and list of qualifications, as well as some additional information about each candidate. We have asked each candidate to respond to questions about issues relevant to the society. We hope this additional information will be helpful in making your selection. The election is open for one month from January 23rd through February 23nd, 2012.

Read about the candidates and vote on the SFS website:

Current members and 2011 members are eligible to vote. You can renew your membership on the SFS website:
