How to Apply
What does it take to be nominated? It’s very easy. Any colleague who is a member of ICHRIE/EuroCHRIE can nominate you or you can self-nominate. I just need your name and a brief mention as you why you might be suitable for the position. I’ll take your expression of interest to the committee. That group will review the nominations and, during the spring of 2022, build the election slate for 2022. So, think about these positions and either nominate yourself or ask a colleague to do it for you. It just takes a quick note.
