2019 RDA TAB Election: voting is open!
TAB Member Election 2019
This October 2019, RDA holds its annual TAB elections. After RDA’s 14th Plenary in Helsinki, Finland, 5 new members will be elected to RDA’s Technical Advisory Board (TAB). There are 14 TAB members, and the following 4 are rotating off in November 2019 as their terms expire:
- Helen Glaves
- Devika Madalli
- Paul Uhlir
- Tobias Weigel
As a result of a decision made at the last Council meeting in July 2017, the 2019 election to TAB will elect 5 members to replace the 4 who are rotating off after their terms are complete. The total number of TAB members will therefore increase to 15 after this year’s TAB Election. 8 eligible candidates are up for the election.
Voting in this election will open on 23 October 2019 at 6:30 UTC, and will close on 6 November 2019 (two weeks later) at 23:59 UTC. All RDA members are eligible and encouraged to vote. After the voting closes, balancing criteria will be applied to make sure TAB continues to represent a variety of regions and disciplines.
