The ORCID community is growing and diversifying in exciting ways, and we want the Board to reflect these dynamics.
The Nominating Committee, which I have the pleasure of chairing this year, will soon be drawing up a slate of new Board members for based on member recommendations. We will take into account sector, region, skills, and non-profit status requirements, to ensure a balanced representation of Board members, as established in the ORCID bylaws. The Board is also looking for individuals who can bring a mix of skills to the organization - technical, financial, non-profit management, research office, data protection, library, data protection/privacy, and more.
Do you or someone you know at an ORCID member organization meet these requirements? Are you passionate about improving the research infrastructure by helping us achieve our vision of a world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected with their works and affiliations across disciplines, borders, and time? Do you want to get involved with our thriving young global organization?
If so, please be sure to complete this nomination form by close of business on August 1.
More information about the Nominating Committee, the timetable and process, and Board member responsibilities can be found on our About Board Elections page. You’re also welcome to contact us directly with any questions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
