TOS Council Positions – Due September 30, 2021
Following our tradition of making opportunities for involvement on the TOS Council available to a wide number of members, we invite members to submit self-nominations for consideration for inclusion on the ballot for Council positions. Information about the role of Councilors and the scientific areas they represent appears below. Self-nominations are due September 30.
TOS Council members guide the direction and activities of the Society. Representing the broad range of expertise and experience across the ocean sciences, Council members serve a three-year term and participate in regular conference calls to conduct customary oversight responsibilities such as reviewing financial and other reports as well as developing and implementing new programs.
