ALPSP Board - Election of two non-executive directors

Following the changes agreed at the EGM on 21 June 2022, there was a call for nominations for the Board of Directors to take up office on 1 January 2023.  In line with the Rules, if there is only one eligible candidate for a vacancy, then that candidate is deemed to have been elected.

A single nomination was received for the following roles, and so these individuals have been elected.

  • Chair of ALPSP - Jamie Humphrey, Royal Society of Chemistry;
  • Chair of Education Committee - Georgie Field, PLOS;
  • Chair of Training Committee - Sophia Anderton, BJU International

As a result of these appointments, two non-executive roles will become vacant at 1 January 2023.  Four nominations have been received and so there will be an election.  The candidates are:

  • Sami Benchekroun, Morressier
  • Sarah Fricker, IOP Publishing Ltd
  • Phil Garner, Becaris Publishing Ltd
  • Allison Lang, BMJ

The nominated representative of each Regular Member organisation is entitled to cast a total of TWO VOTES in this election.  A ballot form has been sent by email to the nominated representative of each Regular member organisation.  The deadline for voting is 23:59 BST on Thursday 1 September 2022.
