DEADLINE: April 23, 2021

The AOAC Technical Division on Reference Materials (TDRM) is establishing a Nominating Committee to begin developing the slate for the 2021 Executive Committee election. The upcoming election will have two Elected Member and three Officer (Chair Elect, Secretary, and Treasurer) positions to be filled. Please contact Lars Reimann at [email protected] if you would like to be considered for this or a future election, or to suggest a nominee; in the subject line of the email please state “2021 TDRM Nomination Request”.

Elected Members serve 3-year terms and Officers serve 2-year terms on the Executive Committee and vote on procedural matters. Executive Committee members also strive to uphold the mission statement of TDRM and advance the quality of analytical measurements through use of reference materials in validating or using analytical methods.

Those who are interested in becoming Executive Committee members through future elections are encouraged to attend the annual TDRM Member meeting at the AOAC INTERNATIONAL Annual Meeting and Executive Committee meetings to learn more about current goals and activities and to become better acquainted with other TDRM members. The last date to suggest a nominee for the current election is April 23, 2021. Once a slate is developed and presented to the Executive Committee, to be sure that the interests of TDRM are well-served, members will have the additional option of running by petition or as write-in candidates. Please see the AOAC TDRM Mission Statement and TDRM By-laws for more details.
