Call for nominations

Chair-Elect of the Association 2014/2015

The Chair is a prominent elected position within the Association for Science Education who will sit on Council, Assembly and represent ASE at the highest level. The Chair-Elect will work in the chair trio partnership (Chair Elect/Chair/Immediate Past-Chair). They will become Chair in 2015/2016 and, in that capacity, will lead the Assembly. As the person elected will eventually become a member of Council, nominees must have had a minimum of three years’ continuous membership of the Association at the date of the election. The successful candidate will take up the role of Chair-Elect in August 2014 and will become Association Chair for 2015/16. Chair Elect nomination form - Deadline 11 July 2014

Assembly 2014/2017

The Assembly will have vacancies for two members to be nominated directly from the membership, and two members to be nominated through the Regions. The Assembly gives advice to Council on all aspects of science education. It has representation from all sectors of the science education community, in order to bring expertise to that debate and to formulate actions to take forward the strategic objectives. If your Region would like to nominate a member, then the process is the same, but a Region Officer must sign it as the ‘supporter’ of the nomination after the prior approval of the Region Committee, at a meeting or by e-mail. Assembly Member nomination form - Deadline 11 July 2014

All voting will be carried out by the membership online in June 2014.
