ISV Officers and Executive Board 2013 - 2015
Dear ISV members,
We are happy to announce the results of the 2013 ISV election.
This year, we saw many more ISV members who volunteered to serve as candidates either as a regular Executive Board member or an Officer. As in the past, the nomination was solicited one month ahead of the Annual General Meeting, and the official ballots were sent out about 2 weeks later. The votes were collected either by e-mail or in person at the General Meeting on October 28, 2013, at Sitges, Spain as part of the 7th Vaccine and ISV Annual Global Vaccine Congress.
We would like to thank ISV members for their very active participation in this year’s election and the candidates for the board and senior officers positions. In particular we want to thank those who were not elected during the current election, and we hope they will continue to actively participate in ISV activities as well as consider putting in their nomination for the next election.
We would like to thank the dedication and significant achievement by members of the last Executive Board (2011-2013), led by Shan Lu. We also thank Ray Spier for serving as the chief officer of the organization for so many years, and look forward to his continued contribution as a re-elected EB member. We welcome the new elected board members and officers; we are looking forward to working together to continue to promote our society.
Adolfo García-Sastre, President (2013-2015)
Annie De Groot, Secretary (2011-2013)
