Dear NAIPI IDeA Members:
In accordance with the NAIPI ByLaws, we are conducting a nomination and election process for positions in the NAIPI National Committee.
We are now soliciting nominations of INBRE, COBRE, or CTR PI/PDs to serve on the National Committee. The National Committee is comprised of PI/PDs. Nominations can be made by any NAIPI member for a number of positions that expired at the end of last year. The new candidates will serve for a four-year time period, as defined in our ByLaws.
Please note that nominations must originate from eligible members from each NAIPI geographic region. Per article 4 of our bylaws: Voting members of NAIPI shall consist of the Principal Investigators and Program Coordinators of the INBRE, COBRE, CTR and any other future new center grant mechanisms within the IDeA program. Also, COBRE Project Leaders, INBRE Project Investigators, and self-identified Principal Investigators whose grant received IDeA cofounding will be voting members of NAIPI. Former IDeA Principal Investigators will have emeritus status (without voting rights). Please, be reminded that each region requires 2 INBRE PI and 3 COBRE/CTR PIs as members.
The nomination process will be open until Monday, March 8 at 4:30 pm (CST). Self- nominations are acceptable. Also, members that have previously served can be nominated.
Nominees will be contacted by NAIPI to confirm their acceptance for serving. Upon completion of the nomination process, the election will be carried out electronically through our currently revised NAIPI website. Information on the election process will be provided at a later time.
We hope to complete the nomination and election process by the end of March 2021.
