ISHLT Board of Directors Call for Nominations

Dear Colleagues:

I am writing to you in my capacity as Chair of the ISHLT Nominating Committee to solicit nominations for the ISHLT Board of Directors. We are seeking nominations for three (3) Director positions. Any current regular member (not a student/resident or emeritus member) may be nominated to serve as a Director. All terms are for 3 years.

ISHLT is currently engaging in a Strategic Planning process that will help define the Society's course and identify key goals and objectives for the next 3-5 years. Helping the Society follow this course and achieve these goals and objectives will require the effort of Board members who are dedicated to the Society, who have time to devote to Society work, and who possess the appropriate skill set to lead the members and key volunteer leaders in these new directions. It is therefore important that all ISHLT members give consideration to the nomination process and participate in the election process during the Annual Business Meeting. The Board of Directors is eager to involve more of the members in the workings of the Society, thus your participation in the selection of the future leadership of the Society is both important and desired.

The nomination process is designed to gather information about the background and skill set of potential nominees and has been modified this year to reflect an increased focus on choosing Board members with strong leadership abilities and experience. I wholeheartedly encourage you to take a few minutes to consider whether any of your ISHLT colleagues should be nominated for the ISHLT Board of Directors. Please see the Call for Nomination for criteria and instructions. The Nomination Packet must be completed and submitted with all required attachments no later than September 30, 2015. The Nomination Packet consists of an Application Form that must be completed by the nominee, and two letters of reference.

The Directors whose terms on the Board expire in April 2016 are as follows:

The individuals who will continue to serve on the Board are as follows:

Thank you for your participation in this very important process.

With best wishes,

Hermann Reichenspurner, MD, PhD
Immediate Past President, ISHLT
Chair, ISHLT Nominating Committee ■
